Build a progressively growing deck from exisiting cards

I have a language course which has 62 Lessons.
All cards are already there in one deck and they are tagged with lesson01, lesson02, .. and so on.
With every new lesson I learn I want to add the cards from the new lesson to the pile of cards I have already learned.
This way the pile of cards grows with my progress and I keep on studying the hard cards from all previous lessons.
I have started building a filtered deck and adding tags to the filter but that becomes very long with every lessons added.
Is there a better way to achieve the task?

    I guess I figured out how to do it better.
    I created a new deck .._learn and moved the cards from the lessons which I have already passed into it.
    So now I have a depot of future cards (which will shrink over time) and a deck of active cards which will grow with every new lesson as I move cards from the depot to the ..learn deck.
    This way I do not need to bother with filters and the due-time of the cards are well stored and updated in the active deck.
