From our newer Crafting the Theory articles there are some that are aimed at also being approachable to new players. The two that come immediately to mind are:
Feel free to add those if you feel they're approachable enough, or disregard the suggestion if you feel they're beyond the intended scope. Kennon could maybe be able to comment on whether some of the older ones would be applicable as well.
Note to self: Might be good to create a Master-thread for these at some point, when work pressure relents...

EDIT: Is there a maximum number of links allowed in one post? Something weird happens when I try to edit and add more.

It's thread is perfect for a newcomer. More game forums should utilize this idea.

I think adding the setup analyzer that was mentioned in the last BtW episode would be a good idea. I'm not sure if it's a great tool to introduce to someone that is completely new to the game (it wouldn't hurt), but it is an excellent tool for someone new to deck building. I'll link it below:

I have one core set and all the house expansions and when building their recommended deck I realized I would need extras of the core set.

While that's amazing here's my problem. I have no clue where to start building some beginner decks to learn the game. The cards date range from 2008-2011.
I'm looking to build a deck for each house that my friends and I can learn the basics until we have enough knowledge to build our own. I know we can look at online decklist but how do I know the quality of the build?

Well, there are a couple of decent starting points; for instance on this board are the decks built with 2x Core sets that certainly won't hurt. Other places to look for good starting points are the "First Tilt" cardgamedb articles, which generally build decks using cards from a limited selection of chapter packs - many of which you might have.
Otherwise, it's somewhat hard to gauge a deck at 'first glance' - as a guideline it shouldn't have more than about 14 events/attachments (aka non-setup cards), should have more than 30 characters, at least 9 resource providers... it's plot deck should probably include Valar.
You can check out decks built on our podcast (especially this episode, which includes two decks designed to introduce new players to the game). Another option is to browse this site, or agotcards.org, for decks that have in their description how they faired at a tournament. If it did reasonably well, at least the deck should be a cohesive and functional entity, even if it might be a tricky deck to play.

Go to the "decks" page on agotcards.org, click on any House and scroll all the way to the bottom. Those decks are from early 2011 so they might be of some use.

Periodically a thread about how to organize your collection pops up and people share binder and box ideas. Anyway we can find and link those here? I think it would be a good thing to add.
