I like what Kodak used to call warm brown. It is a deep chocolate brown almost hard to tell from black. The tone is proportional to image density with the blacks changing the most. You need a warm tone paper to make it work.

I hate orange sepia color.

Cool is sometimes good for seascapes or some mountains.

I did blue toner on Poly Contrast back in the day.

Gold toner is also nice.

Ilford Warmtone RD Pearl finish in Sprint chemistry and then selenium toned. I settled on this some years ago and stick with it for the results I like. It's consistent, and can go from sightly warm to a nearly neutral black depending on how it's developed and toned. Gives marvelous split tones with selenium.
