The Modern Defense works against everything except for 1.b4 or 1.b3. I play the Pirc, KID, and Modern and since they're all interconnected it works great and I can play well against any white first move.
I know this an old discussion but the 1...d6 is much more system-like than 1...nf6
Scandinavian and Slav is your best bet. You will use the c6,d5, sometimes e6 pawn moves. This will cover 1.e4, 1.d4, and 1.c4
Why the Scandinavian instead of the Caro Kann? Simple. The Scandinavian is less work. You can graduate to the Caro Kann.
Which Scandinavian? The trickiest one to meet that is GM tested and increasing in popularity is the Gubinsky-Melts Variation. Get the inside story and join us at http://www.chess.com/groups/view/scandinavian-defense-3qd6-variation
