Should be capable of demagnetizing Sasori's iron sand. It's a given that Deidara should have a harder time demagnetizing the sand considering that Sasori COULD technically keep on producing new sand, but considering Deidara can throw multiple bombs at once, that shouldn't be that much of a problem.
Also, could he sneak in a bomb like he did against Gaara in the middle of all the smoke clouds, explosions and iron sand flying everywhere? Don't think Sasori would notice.
The Iron Sand can intercept any bomb aimed directly for Sasori, He can also merely have extra puppets out to switch to if things get too troubling.
And considering Deidara would be trying to take down Sasori, he'd do his best to demagnetize a good amount of Iron Sand close by to Sasori. Or are you saying that Sasori can just make some of the sand that is attacking Deidara intercept Deidara's explosive before it even comes close to the sand close to Sasori which he would rather use in a worst case scenario? Hmm, yes, that would be a huge pain in the ass for Deidara especially since he is limited to his explosions and chakra while Sasori? Not so much.
Though, I don't see that being the case when Deidara uses larger explosives such as the C2's larger bombs which are apparently muuuch bigger than Bijuus as I have shown you. Same thing with C3. They have a huge AoE and could end up affecting most, if not all of Sasori's IS.
Correct me if I am wrong, but hasn't Deidara only used C3 when he was prepared/had prep time to use it? He went in to Sunagakure with it, did he not? We hadn't seen him use it since then, even in his Edo State.
Point is fair, but still there are two things to consider. C3 doesn't use up that much more clay than a C2 Dragon. Considering it took Deidara like a second or two to create the Dragon which is half the size of the C3, I don't think Deidara wouldn't be able to just create the doll in battle. Even if he can't, what happens if Deidara just drops the whole C2 Dragon? A small part of the whole dragon's tail was capable of creating an explosion that dwarfs Bijuu so if the whole dragon was detonated, wouldn't the results be similiar to that of the C3?
Basically I don't see Deidara being able to completely avoid all of the Iron Sand and demagnetize it with greater explosions before he gets at the least scratched.
With clay clones swapping and hidding himself via dust clouds, it could be possible.
