To me there is nothing magic. And there is no mathematical proof on how to play a tournament.
When you look at your stack determine how many orbits (blinds plus antes) you have left. Have some enter the pot practices based on number of orbits left. If the blinds will go up before you get to the blind then that should go into your current orbits left calculation.
Pot odds take care of them self. If you put in a pot size raise in early position with AK (or xx) then do so. Ante or not will effect starting pot size - all that really matters is pre-betting (and post-betting) pot size.
Base your strategy on position, cards, pot size, and orbits left.
When the binds and antes go up the strategy is the same - just pot size and number of orbits left changes.
Clearly pay out structure comes into play but that is separate.
