With all toning the final colour is dependant on the fineness of the grain in the paper emulsion. That's affected by the choice of developer as well as the development time and temperature.

Although it's some years now I always found MGIV toned well however I've never used a commercial toner and there's a greater degree of control by varying the Bleaches and Toners themselves.

Agfa (Orwo) list 4 different Bleaches and 4 different sepia toners so there's quite a range of colours available.
