No it wasn't. In no way, shape, or form was the 50 card deck beneficial. Nothing good came from it. Virtually every problem we've seen in the game since the size increase is because of the increase. The overpowered effects we see that cause block to happen were because they needed to counter the inconsistencies of having ten extra cards. It killed a ton of theme decks at the time.
And the purpose behind it was to help with creativity by giving players more room to fit newer cards. Well, that didn't work. All it did was force us to run 4 or 5 extra 0 drops and limit our missions into anything that searches or draws. If a mission doesn't add a card to your hand in some way, unless it wins you the game, it virtually unplayable. That's because the decks are too big. We have tons of ridiculous draw and search to keep the game playable, most of which would not have come out if the deck size stayed at 40. There were no benefits to 50 cards at all.
