You're planning on doing your back down sets as sets of ~10reps with front squats after deadlifting?

I fully support doing front squats after deadlift, I would not support doing them as 10 rep sets. I wouldn't do 10 rep front squat sets at any point. At such a high number of reps, you'll start to fail in the upper back well before your quads.

EDIT: As you haven't done front squats a lot before, adding them in is definitely a good idea. Neglected quads are never good.

EDIT2: I really just started adding front squats in as well, and my technique is awful, so take all the above with a grain of salt.
