OKay, so I looked at other routines, but I could not understand COAN and PHILIPPI at all, and I have had success with it so far for squats...
But I see most people deadlifting in lower rep ranges (except that one crasy guy who did 20 reps with 500 pounds, I forget his name) anyway:
Mon - 6x6x70%
Wed - 7x5x75%
Fri - 8x4x80%
Sat - 10x3x85%
Mon - 6x6x70%+10-20 lbs (bigger increase for bigger lift like squats)
Wed - 7x5x75%+10-20 lbs
Fri - 8x4x80%+10-20 lbs
Sat - 10x3x85%+10-20 lbs
Mon - 6x6x70%+15-25 lbs
Wed - 7x5x75%+15-25 lbs
Fri - 8x4x80%+15-25 lbs
Sat - 10x3x85%+15-25 lbs
What do you think?
Or can you recommend another routine?
Or make sense of Coan and Phillippi?

Your setting your max way too high is the issue.
Also if your max is 150 in any of the big 3 you have no business doing a cycle such as that. Just keep increasing the weight week to week, focus on the basics and you'll make far faster progress.
After doing a number of such cycles (smolov, Korte, Sheiko) I have come to the conclusion that they are best left to the advanced lifters... lifters with AT LEAST class 1 status or greater. Prior to that just doing squats, benches and deadlifts using linear progression is far faster progress.I can do all things through Christ, because he gives me strength- Philippians 4:13
