suppose i do the compression test and/or leak test and they come back good.
should i still be concerned about the straightness of the deck or head?

It used to be nearly mandatory to have them both checked any time you take the head off. Not so many people do it now-a-days with aluminum blocks/heads, but it something to look at closely if you have continual blown gaskets.
