What is the best way to get back into Magic: The Gathering?

I played the game (as well as others) a lot as a teenager and recently my best friend has been introduced to the game and is addicted something fierce.
I would like to join him in his quest but here is my situation:
- I've lost my old cards except for a small handful.
- I would like to get in on the cheap-ish, sub $200 for sure. Where can I get cards for the cheapest either online or in the real world in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada?
- What is my best bet for buying cards? What sets? Starters? Boosters? Boxes of boosters? Boxes of boosters split with said friend?
- Any particularly crushing black themed decks currently? I played a black / blue back in the day that relied on Nightmares to do the heavy hitting and Royal Assassins (before they nerfed with with a cost for their ability) to thin out any pesky attackers.
Thanks for any advice including, but not limited to, "waste of money, don't bother, you are a huge nerd"
