Battery degradation... should I care?

Do the batteries in Soul's degrade like leaf's? Or, is it much slower and I shouldn't be concerned?

They do degrade, but typically much slower than a Leaf as there is a battery fan.

There are plenty of reports of people getting battery replacements, but typically in hot environments or where the car has been driven hard (lots of highway mileage). The Soul EV is an aerodynamic brick, it does a lot better at city speeds than highway speeds.

I guess it also depends on your intended use, the actual degradation and the warranty of the car.
