I suggest you use a combination of styling and symbol for the three states e.g.
- Active = normal style, no symbol
- Deleted = strike-through, recycle bin symbol
- Draft = italic, pen symbol
The symbols help users learn what each style means and also help people that don't notice styling. The styling stands out faster when you are looking at a large list and are already used to the convention.
In addition you can use colors, however, I would not go with outlines, as the make the screen look messy and can distract your eyes from the actual content. Also, make sure that all the text colors you use have a good contrast to the background colors. Also, make sure that the active items stand out more from the background more than the deleted items (assuming that the user's main flow isn't going over deleted items).
