Something like (untested):

  (tags-todo "DEADLINE>\"<-3m>\")

Best regards,

[Not sure why, but quoting the OP's message did not work - I had to do
it by hand - I wonder if the problem is with the message or my setup:
if someone could verify, I'd appreciate it.]

C-h v org-agenda-todo-ignore-timestamp RET
C-h v org-agenda-todo-ignore-scheduled RET
C-h v org-agenda-todo-ignore-deadlines RET

<quote>
This variable can also have an integer as a value.  If positive (N),
todos with a timestamp N or more days in the future will be ignored.  If
negative (-N), todos with a timestamp N or more days in the past will be
ignored.  If 0, todos with a timestamp either today or in the future will
be ignored.  For example, a value of -1 will exclude todos with a
timestamp in the past (yesterday or earlier), while a value of 7 will
exclude todos with a timestamp a week or more in the future.

I don't think so: it seems that setting it globally DTRT for the global
todo list (C-c a t). I'm not sure what it does (if anything) when you
set it locally in a custom agenda, but in limited testing it certainly
does not seem to do what you want.

How can you show entries that has a deadline date but no scheduled date?

If it bears a scheduled date then I don't want to show that entry.
