There are a boatload of varieties of squat that blend the line between squat and deadlift. Hacks or Jeffersons, for example. These are often though of as useful only when injury prevents shouldering the bar, but I have found them to be valid assistance exercises in developing a good SQ. They all help with DL, too.

Beyound the arm and upper back involvement, the biggest advantage of the DL is that most people can move more tonnage with the dead. Wore weight = more adaptive stress = good. Unless you can SQ more than you can DL, DL is better for your legs and low back.
