In brief: Both are effective

Both mirtazepine and sertraline are effective antidepressants, but individual people may respond better to one than the other. The real question is what is the best treatment for you.
This may require trying some different approaches -- including psychotherapy that accompanies treatment with medicines.

In brief: No difference.

So far all promises of one antidepressant being more effective than others have not panned out except for perhaps the maoi's.
