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
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?

Thanks. Sorry if you were annoyed.
Not annoyed but the question:
Let sleeping-dogs lie...
This leads probably to Benoni after d5 exd5 cxd5 d6 e4 g6...etc
I use the dutch defense againsy d4
1.d4 f5 I use the stonewall dutch
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.
