Most dry line against d4?

So my setup would be 1...Nf6  2...e6  and then depending what black does go for Queens-indian (after Nf3) or Semi-Tarrasch (after Nc3). Mihal Marin says that the Semi-Tarrasch is an ideal complement to the Nimzo-indian and very similar to the Queens-indian.

Thank you IM pfren for your suggestion with the book, what would be your way to play for a draw with black? What are your thoughts on the Semi-Tarrasch?

Kornevs variation 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Nc3 Be7 5.Bg5 h6 6.Bh4 0–0 7.e3 Nbd7 looks interesting but if im allowed to play the lasker i would do it i only need the draw.

Feel free to employ the Lasker, if you wish, there is nothing wrong with it.

The line suggested by Kornev is (no surprises!) a Kramnik speciality, and is also suggested by another recent reperoire book , which I have reviewed in  my blog.
