There are tradeoffs, you can get started cheap with A-1 wire, but you will be wondering when it is going to fail. A moly system costs more to build but it will have far more reliability and consistently make better glass because you can melt hotter. You are just stringing a wire melter along melting batch. It will crap out, right when you don't want it to.

But like I already said, you can get going on a shoestring.
