Building up low spots with thinset?

This may be a dumb idea, but I'd rather hear from you than learn it first hand.

I'm going to be putting Mexican tile on a basement floor, but part of the floor (maybe 50 square feet) is about 1/2 to 1" low. I've looked around on the website, and it looks like I should use deck mud (and I've seen the instructions in the FAQ). I've got no experience with deck mud, and I don't know if it can be feathered out as needed. Instead I thought that I could just put down an initial layer of thinset, and then follow that with the usual thinset and tile installation.

I've also seen people suggest using self leveling cement, but I think that would cost an awful lot.

Thanks for the help,
