The best defence against 1.d4 is undoubtly the famous Polish defence. You can play it up to a grandmaster level and equalize easily.
nimzo is cool
it gets u equality
I prefer an Indian defence with 1... Nf6 or a Queen's pawn game with 1... d5
I think this a 1.e4 defence...the Caro Kan
Nf6 without a doubt. From there, you keep your options open and can still play whatever you want except for the dutch
Here's my current setup.
Regarding that sequence above, is it better to play 3...d5 first and then play c5 at a more favorable time?
