How to send mixer aux to guitar pedals and back to the mixer?

Hello,

I am going to add a Soundcraft mtk 12 to my set up, for my hardware I just need 4 monos a 2 stereo inputs, so I was thinking of using the 2 mono and the stereo extra channels as FX returns

It has three aux:

1 aux to internal fx, easy..
1 aux to ms70cdr and return to the extra stereo channel, easy too as it has line inputs
1 aux to 2 different distortion guitar pedals via Y cable and back to the mixer on a different channel each.

The mixer has two channel with Hi-Z inputs, should I use those? Being distortion pedals, should I still use a DI box anyway?
Maybe I could also use the group 1-2 outs instead of the aux..
