Advent front derailleur?

The Microshift advent system has shifters for drop bars and an oddly shaped front derailleur that has a range of 44-48.

The drop bars shifters are only sold individually and not as a set.

Why?

Easy crash replacement comes to mind

It appears that the drop bar shifters come as a set that is intended for 1x use, with the left lever being a brake only. There is an optional left lever with a paddle to operate a dropper post.

The advent trekking front derailleur is compatible with Shimano Mountain cable pull, meaning that there is no drop bar lever that is compatible.

Oh, I see, the dropper remote on that advent shifter is for the seatpost, not any derailleur. I didn't even know dropper posts existed until today.

I guess the best solution is a end bar shifter. Do any exist for mountain bike pull?
