He'll drop Messengers, abuse Ino/Zetsu/Akatsuchi to draw into another determination even if I negate one. Any advice? Or do I just have to build a deck to counter his completely and lose to everything else.
A better question would be how not to beat it?
While this variant is original I do not like it.
Beating it is simple, run mission negation. Side deck suigetsu.
There is a suigetsu from set 25 or 26 that removes coins off perms and gives him a pump.
Rush hard and jutsu hard. Hell the deck uses like 4 jutsus,(all with requirements)
If your playing fire, main deck backstab.
Bluff with backstab.
Tofu and temari set 27 are also anti DTP.
Wager. Wager. Wager before they play DTP.
Chances are, if you rush well, you won. If not, side into that suigetsu and really make them regret bringing that deck to any tournament.
