The autoscaling mechanism does not keep track of plot elements, so it has no way of knowing what to change when you delete a line. You will have to keep track of the x and y extents of each element yourself, and manually reset the xlim and ylim when you want to rescale after deleting a line. This can be done with the Axes set_xlim and set_ylim methods.
