Any suggestions for decent compound type back exercises for building mass. Bent barbell row is the closest I'm aware of (relative newbie). And I'm confused, is the dead lift mostly for legs? Seems like it hits legs and lower back and not much for the upper back and lats (which is what gives the appearance of being big, yes?).

I found a new exercise I really like, not sure what it is.
I take a barbell and place it on the ground in the corner. I put weight on one end and leave the other end of the bar anchored against to wall corner. Then I make a handle by using a cable seated row handle thing and place it under the barbell right behind the weight plate. stand over the bar, bend knees slightly and lift the bar in sort of a bent row fashion.
Anyone understand what I'm describing? And what exactly is this exercise. I feel it in my upper back, lower back, quads, biceps, and shoulders all at once.
Can anyone direct me to a link or site that explains the different types of deads and how to correctly perform them? I've only seen the straight leg dead which I'm not interested in as I'm looking for some back stuff rather than hams (squats are more than enough to blast my chicken legs at this point in my level of fitness).
bent rows, underhand grip bent rows, dumbell rows, seated pully rows, weighed chins, t-bar rows, rack deads = big back
