What is a great soil substrate?

Soooo I've been reading around the forums and online and stumbled across soil tanks. Now I want to start a 20g tank! Any personal recommendations on which soil to choose and tips to get it started? It's my first soil tank so I'm looking for as much advice as I can get. Thank you

From what I've read everyone seems to use Miricle-Grow Organic. There could be more though.

I kept seeing miracle grow. I guess that is a personal preference. Thank you
