It is almost impossible to suggest an alternative key binding because there are just too many variables involved. What you can use will depend on what window manager you use and the key shortcuts it uses (which will 'steal' keys before Emacs get to see them) and on the terminal emulator and the remote access protocol (i.e. ssh, telnet, tmux, screen etc) you use. Then there is differences depending on what Emacs packages you are using and what (if any) key bindings you have already defined and whether they are global or local definitions etc. My suggestion would be to use something like the free-keys (available in melpa) package to identify what key bindings are available when in an org buffer and select one of those. It may also be worthwhile considering using something like hydra. You could define an org specific hydra and associate all your preferred bindings to that hydra. Org can be particularly challenging because it already has some complex key bindings, so avoiding unexpected side effects when adding/changing bindings can be a challenge.
