That's been my experience (personal and in shops), Deore and SLX durability is lower. Not enough that I'd care to prematurely upgrade, but when it broke I would. Durability really is min/maxxed with XT. I can't stand bushings on my derailleur pulleys.
My magic combo is XT everywhere, XTR or XX1 chain, Deore cassette. I also can't stand loosing a cassette to a few worn aluminum cogs and can't spring for Titanium. I have two 12spd bikes with that setup (and turbine cranks and blackspire rings... When it works it works)
