If you mean getting the bar moving, then I have found that cleans have helped improve my deadlift, also deficit deadlifts are good for strength off the floor too.

What are your weaknesses? Are you unable to get the bar off the floor, or do you stall out somewhere along the way?

More deadlifts, high reps, low reps but basically more deadlifts.
If you are going to do assistance then do something which mimics the lift like below-the-knee-partials or deficits.

If you struggle off the floor try deficit pulls (standing on a platform) or pulling against chains and bands to increase bar speed.

if you can maintain form form use deficit deads. If you cant(like me) use snatch grip deadlifts. If you are crazy, use snatch grip deficit deads. You can also use bands to increase speen from the floor if you have access to them or reverse bands to use heavier weights at lockout.

Deficit pulls. Stand on a plate or two. get yourself up 2-4" up off the ground.
Also get some dynamic work in, bands and/or chains. This will encourage you to explode out of the hole to get the momentum to lock out the extra weight at the top.
for assistance, do lots of Good Mornings (HEAVY), reverse hypers, glute ham raise, box squats as well.
The deadlift is the hardest to make progress in, but there is a lot of work you can do with your form to help as well. make sure you're not too far forward, depending on your stance you don't want your shoulders to be in front of the bar. Sit back into the lift to encourage driving through your heels. Make sure you're not falling forward onto your toes.
