1. Summon Cat Ear Tribe with enough LP!

The best starting hand is a set of Cat's Ear Tribe and Riryoku Field. Basically Kaiba does not attack your Cat's Ear Tribe unless the battle position of the monster is Defense or your Life Points are less than the total battle damage his monsters can inflict during a turn.

If a copy of Cat Ear Tribe is not in your staring hand, receive 1800 or more points of battle damage. Then the "Draw Sense" skill allows you to draw the monster card. The skill counts battle damage even if you activate Enchanted Javelin. Use Supremacy Berry to regenerate your Life Points.

2. Negate the activation of Enemy Controller

You have to defend your Cat's Ear Tribe from Kaiba's Enemy Controller. Use Riryoku Field or Magic Jammer to negate the effect of the spell card.

Tips for defeating Seto

Tips

  • Use monster removal

    Since it is difficult to destroy Seto's high ATK monsters in a battle, use monster removals to beat them.
  • Equip spells/Wonder Balloon don't work well

    You may not apply those cards since Seto use Twister to remove those cards.
  • Attack with Element Soldier/Doom

    Destroy monsters Kaiba controls with using Element Soldier / Element Doom and support cards such as Sword of Dark Destruction and Wonder Balloons. Those Element monsters can negate the effect of D.D. Warrior.

  • Perform Tribute and Ritual summon

    Performing both Tribute and Ritual summon gives you 700 score in total. If you have already unlocked Pegasus, use Relinquished to perform ritual summon. For tribute summon, Shadow Ghoul is ok since it is very easy to get.

  • Finish with Shadow Ghoul's over 3000 damage

    Shadow Ghoul gain 100 ATK for each monster in your graveyard. Use Sword of Dark Destruction, Reinforcements and other ATK boost to increase the ATK of the monster over 3,000, then attack Kaiba's Life Points directly with the monster.

From my experience he actually not concern about your HP that much unless he could win that turn. It depends on cards he has that time, especially D.D.warrior which could remove our cat ear 100%. If he has another monster he will attack cat ear with D.D first but if not he will set D.D. instead. Enemy control is the same as always, using while he have more monsters than you or could possibly win that turn.
