Deads, 1st or last?

changing afew routines around at the moment to hit my training from a different angle, and one change mite be doing deadlifting last thing when training back. Anyone else do this? Usually i deadlift on a Sunday, just deads nothing else, 4x6. My routine looks like this;

Chins, 3x failure (warm up)
Hammer strength pull downs, 3x8
Bent over rows (either over/under hand grip), 3x8
Hammer strength 1arm rows, 3x8
Hyperextensions, 2x8
Deads, 2x8

    Ive always prefered to do deads last,doing them first wipes me out for the rest of the workout.

    I would always deadlift first when at your freshest. Its the heaviest, most technical lift you'll be doing. Form will always suffer when fatigued and deadlifts aren't the most forgiving exercise.

    My personal choice is always doing them first due to the taxing nature of them.

    Although i suppose it will come down to the individuals goals to a certain extent.

    if I do them first my other lifts suffer, if I do them last my deads suffer.
    so I have a day dedicated to deads only, simple
