Please don't abandon Linux mint debian edition its good for Linux mint to have a debian distro after all its a lot faster than Ubuntu and more stable.
I wish to move to testing debian repos for newer kernel version.
Linux Mint DE is the best of the best !

I would expect a new version of LMDE after Stretch has been released as the new Debian stable.

LMDE is designed to run with Debian stable repos.

If you wish to use Debian testing repos then, I suggest, these will be incompatible with LMDE and so will result in breakage.

Stretch will enter a deep freeze period in January 2017. It will be released around summer 2017. We will see a new version of LMDE at this time. Summer/Fall 2017. Probably not before.

If it's only for the kernel, then you should check the backports. They have currently the kernel 4.8.
No need of testing if it's only for the kernel. Additionally, as highlighted by Zill, grabbing something from testing now may severely damage your system. It may well upgrade half of it and break Cinnamon for example.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
