So what you guys think? Mardu Kiki-Control a thing or you guys think I'm silly?
I played Boros Kiki-Control (+ a Godless Shrine for Lingering Souls) for a while and it was great against aggro and fairly even against BGx depending on the build. It struggled against Twin's tempo plan and rolled over to Bloom, so now that those menaces are gone I think it's worth another look. The black splash would help against combo, and I think Painful Truths needs to be in there at least as a 2 of in the 75 to help grindy matchups. The benefit of Mardu is that it can be tuned with a ton of land, search and graveyard hate if that is necessary. The downside is that it lacks the early pressure that BGx can generate, so Tron ends up still being tough even with a good amount of hate.
One thing you could look at for your build is having an opinionated maindeck. I know midrange in general tries to be saltine-bland in G1, but IMO Mardu can skew itself to beat aggro without giving up too much against other matchups.
