Add Alchemy as a separate thing
Add Alchemy as a separate gamemode entirely, and let historic become the eternal format for MTGA.
Take the opportunity to move the digital only cards out of historic and into historic alchemy instead.
There is only two reasons for why you wouldn't do this; Either you intentionally do this because you believe you can get more money, or you simply haven't understood why an eternal format is needed.
