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.
