order doesn't really matter.

A lot of players are going to tell you that your first purchase should be a 2nd core set... That allows you to build up a good card pool, and give you more of the super good neutral cards featured in there. That's not the route I personally took, but it is good advice.

you can always look at https://thronesdb.com/ and see exactly which cards are in which expansion, and just choose to buy the expansions that feature the cards you feel like you want the most, or benefit most the faction that becomes your favorite.

I typically have bought them in chronological order. Though there is no real reason for that decision.

I'd go with two cores first if one core makes you feel this is worth collecting. Then get deluxe expansions, and finally start collecting chapter packs in reverse chronological order (the logic being you'll hopefully get the counters to the most popular new cards along with them).

At some point consider the usefulness of a third core, or wait for that darn champion deck to be released for some more economy cards.
