How about creating a SP like this and create a new alert with this SP ?

IF (EXISTS (SELECT name FROM msdb.dbo.sysalerts WHERE name = N'Deadlock Occurance'))
 ---- Delete the alert with the same name.
  EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_delete_alert @name = N'Deadlock Occurance'
EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_add_alert @name = N'Deadlock Occurance', @message_id = 8901, @severity = 0, @enabled = 1, @delay_between_responses = 60, @include_event_description_in = 5, @job_name = N'Report Problem', @category_name = N'[Uncategorized]'

You can use something like this (changing the email and names if you want):

USE [msdb]
EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_add_operator @name=N'DBA',
EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_add_alert @name=N'Locking',
            @performance_condition=N'SQLServer:Locks|Lock Wait Time (ms)|_Total|>|1000',
EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_add_notification @alert_name=N'Locking', @operator_name=N'DBA', @notification_method = 1

for deadlock you can try code below and adjust it to your requirments:

---create operator as per gpompe's post  
use MSDB

IF (EXISTS (SELECT name FROM msdb.dbo.sysalerts WHERE name = N'deadlock'))
 ---- Delete the alert with the same name.
  EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_delete_alert @name = N'deadlock'
EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_add_alert @name = N'deadlock', @message_id = 0, @severity = 0, @enabled = 1, @delay_between_responses = 60, @performance_condition = N'SQLServer:Locks|Number of Deadlocks/sec|Database|>|0', @include_event_description_in = 5, @category_name = N'[Uncategorized]'

EXECUTE msdb.dbo.sp_add_notification @alert_name = N'deadlock', @operator_name = N'', @notification_method = 1

Deadlocking is more than blocking. Blocking occurs when one thread is waiting on another, and some brief blocking is normal.

A SQL Server deadlock occurs when two or more processes have acquired locks on their respective resource, and they need to get an incompatible lock on the other's resource in order to finish a transaction. The result is mutual blocking: each waits on the other to acquire some resource that the other process already has.
