Gerrymandering, with the advent of sophisticated computer programs, has become less of the art form that it was in the past an more of a science. But there's still a trade-off between the number of seats you can obtain and the safety factor of said seats. If you want to maximize your short term power you can do so by reducing the margin needed to obtain the seats but you sacrifice surety of holding them in case of a wave election. A smaller number of seats could be made waveproof , but then you've only got a smaller number of seats.
