In general, Viral and Radiation are the best for Grineer, Magnetic and Toxin for Corpus, and Corrosive with Blast or Heat for Infested. 

 

Viral gives a bonus against all Grineer because they all fall into the "cloned flesh" category, with Radiation giving extra damage against Bombards and Napalms, the two most troublesome heavies.

 

Magnetic destroys shields, but does little against the flesh of the crewmen, so that's why Toxin is added.

 

Corrosive is the best element against Disruptors and Toxics, the most troublesome infested units. Blast does more to those two as well, but does less against the Healers, so it's your choice if you want to add that cold damage to the heat or not. Heat will add extra damage vs the light infested units with no downside to the heavies.

 

For Corrupted, they're just an amalgam of all the other factions. Because of the units they have, Corrosive and Cold are generally seen as the best elements. Cold does extra against the shields while Corrosive will do extra damage to the heavy gunners.

 

If you want to look at what the specific damage bonuses are for different units and factions, there's a well organized table on the wiki's page for Damage 2.0

Viral and Fire for Grineer, Gas for Infested, Viral and elec for Corpus.

 

Gas does do extra damage against the infested, but only the light units. You're going to have a lot more trouble against the ancients when you come across them. Viral and Electric doesn't help with the Corpus' shields, so unless you have a Mag using Shield Polarize all the time, Magnetic is the way to go.

A Sidenote - at lower levels, you may wish to go Corrosive/FireorCold for Grineer, only as the majority of Alloy armor units wont spawn until lvl 18-22ish.
