anything close to 200 is good if you're just starting out.
Deadlift is 70% technique. I doubled my deadlift just by learning how to drag the bar on my shins and keep my hips back, rather than leaning forward.
Form > strength. deadlift is an ego lift.
So there is no amount you "should" be able to deadlift. I've seen dudes who can only deadlift 250-300 be bigger and more built than dudes who can deadlift 425-500 ish. techniqueee

Last time I did, I did 3x10x165. I think I could have gone to about 170-175ish for 3x10 though, didn't really feel to tired/sore after those sets. I've just been taking it easy since I'm still a noob at deads. Don't want to get hurt, since I'm also not using a belt or whatever.

I'd say about 300-350.****KNEE DRAGGERS UNITE****
Stop trying to escape your disasters, I want to see you believing in what
you are. Stop trying to explain yourself cause life’s too short to be the
dust on the top shelf.
Stop running away from who you are cause time is lost so quickly. Take
your mistakes for what they are – it’s just part of being human and
learning to fall.

Remember these standards are based on your 1RM. If you don't know your 1RM, use this link to estimate it:
200 would be quite good if you're just starting out. 300+ as some have suggested is rather a lot for somebody weighing 135lbs, and it takes a while to work up to deadlifting over twice your body weight..
