Is keyword blocking useful?  The majority of traffic on the Internet is encrypted.

 

[Edit: I'm asking this sincerely.]

Why not, at least, use an ad blocker, like uBlock Origin?  Not only can it block https ads, but you're leveraging the hard work of others to build the right filters.  It's also customizable, so you can add your own filters.  If you look at their filters, there are thousands of URLs to block.  You're fighting a losing battle with keyword blocking.
