If you want to stick with NT, you only have two options for futures: NT brokerage and IB. To use IB, you have to deal with TWS running side-by-side with NT, which I found to be a pain in the ass. Just stick with NT brokerage if you want to use NT.

Personally, I would be more concerned with finding the right trading software that fits your style before worrying about a broker. The difference between NT brokerage and other discount futures brokerages is gonna be less than $0.10 per side.
