I did present this as a hypothetical--before this thread got hijacked by the "A FEW PEOPLE ON REDDIT DETERMINED OVER SIX WEEKS THAT THIS FORMAT WOULD NEVER WORK BECAUSE IT'S NOT REAL LEGACY AND THEREFORE NOBODY EVER WANTS TO PLAY IT EVER EVER EVER" crowd--and I laid out my reasons why I THINK it WILL happen EVENTUALLY
Man, if you want to play that game, then let's do it.
Yes there's a difference between arguing if a format if going to exist, or if a format is going to be good. I understand that you want to discuss how things will be based on the premise that it will be. Fine.
But then, you basically admit you never tested the format yourself, and I along with others bring you experiments/reports/test results on the work you should have done, rectifying points you're trying to bring our of nowhere when some others tested it and proved your wrong. Then you say you don't want to take their experience and don't care about the people who shared the same ideas as you and actually put them in practice to see where it was leading. So I asked you what you were disagreeing/disliking with in their approach and you can't answer properly without a bunch of non sense. There are reasons why the format you're suggesting isn't ''logistically sustainable''.
You're calling that we're taking your thread and misdirecting it, but you refuse to see any logic and keep saying ''it wouldn't happen like that'' when it did, and moreover you can't even bring a glimpse of experiment or fact to support your ''it wouldn't happen like that'' hypothesis.
Not even counting your last message, you're spreading a bunch of false information around that is easily provable but refuse to see the numbers and facts because you seem blinded by some kind of idea. Legacy is dying, really?
I'll stop there, I would rather not be disrespectful. I'll try to answer your bold question:
''If Wizards was to pull the trigger and establish this format, what is the most logistically feasible way for them to do it?''
The most LOGISTICALLY FEASIBLE WAY? They would need to stop supporting Modern and just replace it with this format, just like they did with Extended.
I'm sure you see the problems it creates: they stop pushing a format they spent years to built, they lose their players' trust, and they create a format that pretty much no one would play in a matter of months. Even this part:
''...and I laid out my reasons why I THINK it WILL happen EVENTUALLY.''
No offense but I will take Wizard's words over yours in this case: they chose Modern and don't want to create the Eternal format. That you refuse to take their word, too, is just... I don't find the words for it. And yes, I'll also take the words of a few guys on reddit who posted their experience, experiments, testings and results over your non-based claim on this forum, especially since you avoid answering any questions and choose to take facts as attacks over what they are: the best base we can argue on.
That being said, I'm done with this. Best of luck in your quest!
