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.
