There is a deobandi masjid where I happen to pray. Sometimes the Imam say ‘Allahu Aghbar’ instead of ‘Allahu Akbar’ in takbirs other than the opening one. But he doesn’t perform sujood as sahw at the end of prayer or even after Salam. Now do I have to repeat the prayers behind him (though he didn’t make mistake in pillars)?

You need to talk to him. If he is unable to pronounce it correctly, his prayer is valid but you shouldn’t pray behind him due to corruption in his Aqeedah. But if he can say it correctly but doesn’t want to, the prayer is invalid.
