This is obviously just a subjective matter and everyone will have their own personal preference. However if I was asked what my preference was then that would be Hasklig. It's a clean typeface based off Source Code Pro but with a few added ligatures - albeit subtle ones designed to make Haskell more readable. Those ligatures also suite murex pretty well. So the overall experience is a clean and readable terminal.

This site is rebuilt weekly, the content is automatically generated from murex's source code.

Current version is 1.3.1000 BETA which has been verified against tests.
