It depends.

For low tech, I like 1/4 of Miracle Grow Potting soil. It doesn't matter what you cap it with but I like Petco black sand. The sand is attractive but still fairly course for sand.

I have never had luck with dirt in a high tech tank. I have use Flourish with great results but I have moved away from it, especially the Black Sand as I seem to scratch the glass with it, no matter how careful I am.

Right now, I am going to say AS but I haven't used it enough to really qualify it as such. It is pretty amazing how quickly roots seem to grow in plants that I am not used to seeing heavy roots in. It clouds pretty easily but not to the point of being bothersome.
