I found a site that offers one booster box of each of the three sets for $45, and another $15 for shipping (bleh). So $60, all told.

Two questions:

1. Is this a good deal?

2. Is this a good way to get into Hecatomb? Ideally I'd like to build a number of decks (at least 4) with good variety and reasonable balance, and then never buy any more.

Looking at the game page this price is just below average so that's good. They also have some reviews so all the information you are looking for is available.

I have a bunch of cards (which are cool) but have never played. The booster boxes I got seemed to have a good variety of cards so I would assumes this is a good way to get into the game.

The cards are a weird shape so I have mine stored in a cd carrying case. Worked great.

With the shipping, it's not a great price, but it's not terrible. I wouldn't be surprised if you could buy or trade for a collection cheaper--if you can wait for an opportunity to come up.

One booster of Blanket of Lies will get you very near a full set of that expansion. You will still be short a lot of rares and some uncommons for the base set and Last Hallow's Eve.

You will get more than enough to play the game, though.

Actually, I managed a full set of Blanket of Lies on a single booster box.

The art and shape of the cards cannot be described as anything less than unique. The play style - though I haven't conned anyone into playing the actual game - has been described to me as similar to MtG.

I'm just 15 or so cards away from a complete collection (1 from base and the rest from Last Hallow's Eve)

I've got a sealed booster box of Blanket of Lies, and a ton of extra commons/uncommons/rares if you're interested in picking some up.
