I've googled and been unable to find a way to load deepin, has anyone been able to get this running?

Not available in Stretch which is what MX-18.2 is currently based on. Looks like parts of it are available in Buster.

The latest Deepin 15.10 release is apparently based on Debian Stretch just like MX, so you might be able to add their repo to get the Deepin desktop: https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=deepin

Of course, try this on an experimental install or back up your production system first.

Porting over the Deepin DE to MX looks like it would involve a very large number of packages.
