d a Prelim yesterday both with the same list pre-nerf.
Druid is able to survive the Companion nerf better than the other Lurrus lists thanks to manadorks and a bunch of ways to protect it to continually accrue CA. On that note, here's a new card that might end up replacing a couple flex slots.
Our ideal opening hands are ones that have Druid and some way to beat a kill spell while still killing on T3. This Benevolent Body Guard riff is another card that allows for that, which is mostly worse than Giver but does have some advantages over Giver in spots where you have Lunge in hand. It is also neat with Lurrus as are most creatures with sac effects, and Ranger-Captain for people who are off the Companion.
