Which Triple Color do you think is aggressive Jund or Mardu ?

Jund will generally be better, by simple virtue of the fact that it has access to green which provides ramp. It also has good support for creature tutors, which white lacks. The only caveat to this comment is that Edgar Markov exists as a card.

Mardu Knightquipment with Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale and Humankens with Jirina Kudro are pretty aggro.

They both can be aggressive in their own right. Just depends how you want to do it I suppose. As stated Jund has ramp and generally revolves around sacrificing something for gaining bigger, better somethings because green. Where Mardu can capitalize on whites 'go wide weenie' strategy better I think. Take Alesha for example, she can rely on the GY for gas, and dump into it via sacrifice, discard, Entomb effects, etc, to keep going. This can also enable a toolbox set up.

I exclusively play Mardu in EDH. Jund is much more aggressive. Green gives them faster mana ramp and better card draw than white, so they can make a bigger push faster than Mardu. The only thing white offers is more control in the form of tax pieces or wider access to infinite combos. Mardu is less aggressive but it certainly can draw a lot of hate from the table if you try to capitalize on the white side of it.

I gota give it to jund but it's really close. I mean Kaalia of the Vast & Alesha, Who Smiles at Death can be pretty aggressive. But it's like asking what's more aggressive gruul or boros. (1) 10/10 or (5) 2/2s your getting 10 to the face either way.
