Deck Making Help

I was wondering what would be some good starts to making a deck. I have taken a look at intro packs, event decks, fat packs, and deck builders tookits. I was wondering which one/s would be the best I will be playing casually with friends but I would still like to win some. When you give your example it would be helpful for the type like the 2013 or gatecrasher edition with you suggestions. Thank you!
I have heard that the deckbuilder's toolkit is a decent start because you get basic lands (I think). that helps you with your mana base. As far as the actual cards, buy singles. It might not be as fun as opening boosters but trust me, it's the right thing to do. You will probably only have a mediocre deck if you just buy boosters and hope for the best.

What type of deck do you want to run? What colors do you like? what format restrictions are you abiding by?

I agree with Smoke_Stack, Booster Packs and Fat Packs are some of the least cost-effective ways to get into deck building. Most people picture themselves cracking a planeswalker or some other awesome rare, but the odds of this happening are extremely low and you'd save a lot of money just buying the specific cards you want.

Intro Decks, Event Decks and the Deck Builder's Toolkit are all fine though. Depending on how proficient your opponents are, you may or may not be able to win with these products. Designing your own deck will allow you to put together much stronger strategies. The following site has a bunch of inexpensive decks which you could buy singletons for. These builds are much stronger than the Intro and Event Decks.

So i have done some looking and it looks like i would like to get a builders toolkit which one? I would also like to get 2 event decks which would be: I would like a green deck it could be mixed and the other i would like to be either a very strong deck that a bit different open to any suggestioins.
Well what deck you choose depents on your taste but I like combining green with ged or black. or both
I used fat packs as a pseudo punishment for my girlfriend. She'd buy me one and I wouldn't let her open any. She'd get really aggressive with me so I usually have a rolled up newspaper and the squirt bottle filled with ice cold water.
a good  deck statrts movi9ng at the start and stays moving thtoughout the game

this means a player should so something on  turn 1
that would require that 9 the player can plai on turn one cards need to be in the deck of edged odds of drawing one in seven cards. [60/7 = 8.67 crads]
ON round 2 at 8 cards a player ....


24 lands
9 1 drops (1 casting cost cards that need no target) and land that enters play tapped
8 2 drops
7 3 drops


6 of each combo piece (1 in 10 cards) in a 60 card deck ( a player that goes first has 10 cards on turn 4)

Lol
I have looked even more now and I want to get a starter pack for some base cards including the land cards and I would like to start a green(could be a dual color like green/red) deck for a base and I would like to make one other deck that could be any color that is a good base counter for almost all decks.
Get an event deck. They have all the lands you need and there's probably quite a few of the basic cards you need too. I just got the Rakdos one because I needed more land, the 4x Searing Spear and the Vexing Devil to round out my playset. Even though it was $20, the devil is somewhere around 6 and the spear is like $1 each. Plus, Mizzium Mortars is a great card.

Basic lands should be available at a game store for a dime or a nickle

Would I be possible to tweak the entangling webs deck from magic 2012? Some things I see online are rampant growth,  Llanowar Elves, and rancors.
