I have both discs and v-brakes. They both work more than adequately.

I once bought and rode a bicycle with an aluminum fork. That lasted about four weeks; never again. Aluminum is a great material for making main frames; it is a lousy material out of which to make rigid forks. I suppose they'd be ok on a fat bike, or on any bike if one is never going to use a tire less than 38 or 40 mm wide.

So, carbon fork or discs? Ideally both; if I had to choose, the former.
