I'm trying to use Brion Stoutarm to fling creatures I would have to sac anyways, like Spark Trooper or Crumbling Colossus. Since I already have to sac them, cards like Hazoret's Favor and Fatal Frenzy have no downside. Any and all suggestion/help is welcome as I've just started building this deck and want to make it good. Thanks!

You should probably cut "Assemble the Legion" it won't do enough for you and has cmc 5. While indestructible will protect you from damage effects it doesn't help against -n/-n spells or counters. You probably want some extra removal or disruption outside of "Lightning Helix" and "Blasphemous Act"
Rift Bolt is budget friendly, Deflecting Palm and Searing Blood are worth considering. Spark Trooper and Tuktuk the Explorer are fun, though what you probably need is more 1 drops, maybe Grim Lavamancer...

Well what type of Mardu Midrange deck do you want? There a lots of different directions Mardu can go. It can go for a Young Pyromancer/Monastery Mentor build. It can go for a Jund-esque Good Stuff build. It can go Nahiri. It can go tokens, it can go burn. There are lots of options -- and the cards you have listed above do not do much to narrow down the style you are potentially looking to play. I get that you want to play burn stuff and control -- preferably in the same card. But you have some very curious inclusions and omissions if that is what you want to play.
That being said, I cannot guarantee that the cards I suggest you will use, as they all fit into various Mardu Midrange archetypes. But cards that are good in Mardu that you do not have listed above that I can think of off the top of my head are: Terminate, Crackling Doom, Dark Confidant, Lightning Helix, Monastery Mentor, soul fire grandmaster?, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Abbot of Keral Keep, Pia and Kiran Nalaar, Grim Lavamancer, Painful Truths, Murderous Cut, Dreadbore, Ajani Vengeant, Nahiri, the Harbinger/Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, Batterskull, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Goblin Dark-Dwellers, Kitchen Finks, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Stormbreath Dragon, Thundermaw Hellkite, Night's Whisper, Fulminator Mage, Shambling Vent, Zealous Persecution, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar.
Some of the cards you have listed above, inversely, should likely not go in any list. Dash Hopes, Mana Tithe, Ojutai Exemplars, Platinum Emperion (outside a deck dedicated to that combo you described), Avaricious Dragon, Dragonlord Kolaghan, Spark Trooper, Reforge the Soul, and Colfenor's Plans are all pretty meh, and I can almost guarantee that the cards I suggested could be slotted into a deck in their stead and make the deck better.

Omg for the SGRPC I was just looking over my deck and saw that somehow I effed up and had two copies of Legion Loyalist. I just fixed it by adding Spark Trooper back in. Sorry! I just wanted to tell you in case anything comes up!
