Which OT is closest to the one quoted in NT?

Which OT is most similar to the OT verses quoted in the NT? MT? LXX? DSS (for which we don’t have a complete OT)? Other?

Paidion or Davo are probably more expert but i think it’s the LXX

The LXX seems to have a bad rep with Bible translators, since most of the big name translations rely primarily on the MT. I find this decision confusing since the oldest extant LXX manuscripts are centuries older than the MT.
