I wanted to do a method similar to and old school kind of "Peaking." I have never done this before so this kind of made sense in my head. What would you suggest to be done for my deadlifts?
Ah, I see. I missed the deadlift annotation the first time.

It could work. Try it out and see how it works. If you get stronger doing it after about 8 weeks, then great.

For this type of progression/peak, I would work up to a heavy single, then do 1-3 back-off sets with lighter weight in the 3-5 rep range. That will help you train your CNS for peak strength while still continuing to build the deadlift. I am not saying your way can't work though.
