Simply having a gaps argument isn't nearly sufficient for me. With respect to deism: I think that any conscious being that would have created this world either was negligent or malicious in the creation process - much less the management time since initiation. Given that I wouldn't be either of those things in creating my own universe, I think that such a god doesn't exist. If it did, I'd rather not think about it.
But, yeah, I have a lot in common with deists other than on that point.
