SLX vs Deore Brakes

Hi, have an opportunity to pick up a set of SLX brakes for £20, the front brake is in great condition and excellent working order really powerful but the lever has snapped on the rear after an impact with a tree. Is it worth repairing the SLX for about £10 more than a brand new Deore (new lever and bleed) or using the front SLX and buying a brand new Deore for the rear.

Also, if I went for the latter option is there a big difference in the lever feel of the brakes? I don't think I'd get on with different shaped levers on each brake.
