This looks like a very good way to handle this use case.

The daily agenda is really about "what is up today", and it
should tell you in the morning what stuff is waiting for you
instead of giving you nasty surprises at 3 in the afternoon.

You can add a repeater to both the deadline and the
scheduled item, they will both be kicked forward when
you mark the entry done.
