Personally i'd fine tune the CG before adding downthrust or mixes. Climbing too strongly under power is a often symptom of being nose heavy (CG too far forward). only once you are 100% sure that the CG is in the optimal position should you start adjusting thrust angle.

High wing planes usually need a fair bit of downthrust even once the CG is nailed but on mid and low wing aerobatic types you should be able to get rid of excessive climbing purely by adjusting CG.
