It depends.

It helps to imagine a series of questions:

1: Who did the deed?
2: Have you done the deed?
3: What about the deed?
4: Which deed have you done?
5: What have you done?

As something more non-sequitous, then either a flat delivery or number 3 would be best.

[EDIT] To clarify: The five questions should elicit the five answers in the poll, in order.

it sort of depends on what contrast it is said in, like if someone couldnt do something, it would be I have done the deed.

if you are being cocky, it would be i have DONE the deed

well.... i dont know... maybe i am thinking to much...
