I like to mix my deads with Kroc rows, chins, and GHR. Depending on where you're weak, work that (for me it's lock-out, the Krocs and possibly glute bridges / hip thrusts help). Other good mixes are good mornings, reverse hypers, and high-rep shrugs.
How big are you jumping with the weight? I prefer a slower, steadier progression, to maintain progress and avoid burn-out. Currently it's Wendler 5/3/1, with a 10# progression every cycle (about a month), and a de-load every cycle as well. I've done periods where I'm going up 10-20# per week, but that was early in my lifting career (I'm still pretty green at all of this, but I own 500#).
Volume will definitely work your size if you're going for that.
