I found I had the best progress on my deadlift when I started focusing on low reps (mostly singles) and disregarding linear progression. Eventually you'll hit a wall that way, just because you can't add weight every time you pull.
As far as weight, I like to deadlift in the 85% range for the most part.
I add weight whenever I feel strong or whenever my working sets feel light; so it's fairly instinctive.
Form follows function.
