    The best defence against 1.d4 is undoubtly the famous Polish defence. You can play it up to a grandmaster level and equalize easily.

    I prefer an Indian defence with 1... Nf6 or a Queen's pawn game with 1... d5

    Regarding that sequence above, is it better to play 3...d5 first and then play c5 at a more favorable time?

    I find Grunfeld to be very useful, Kings indian is a very agressive reply i also use, you can also transpose into modern defense with g6, e4. Also benoni defense with benko gambit if you choose. Dutch defense lenigrad, although i dont love it because of the exposure to your king through the f7 diagonal.
