Problem with d-pawn openings is that you won't get away without learning substantial amount of theory.This goes true for every single line from systems like Stonewall and Colle to Queen's Indian Defense. I don't really know of a system which doesn't require the enormous amount theory generally associated with d-pawn openings. Chigorin has very little theory associated with it because it is a an unusual opening and its theory is not very well developed. Here are some suggestions:

Against 1.d4 d5 2.c4 you can try Albin Counter Gambit (ECO:D08–D09). This is an attempt get out of well developed theoretical lines of Queen's Gambit.(Morozevich is the only one who regularly this variation at Master level.)


[FEN ""]

1. d4 d5 2. c4  e5


If you like tactical positions and imbalances,you could try Modern Benoni(ECO:A60–A79)


[FEN ""]

1. d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 e6 4.Nc3 exd5 5. cxd5 d6*


If you are looking for solid positional play,you could try Modern Defense(ECO:B06).(I would recommend this since you can use it against King pawn openings as well)

Note: It is actually categorised Under King Pawn openings.


[FEN ""]

1. d4 g6 2. e4 Bg7


My personal favorite against Queen's Gambit is Tarrasch Defense(ECO:D32–D34).


[FEN ""]

1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 c5


If any of above openings Doesn't seem appealing , you can try Dutch Defense(ECO:A80–A99).Hikaru Nakamura plays this opening a lot by the way.


[FEN "put your fen here but it's optional. You can leave this tag out"]

1. d4 f5 *


I do love King's Indian Defense. But I love smashing it as white(Again you will have to learn ridiculous a lot of theory here.)

Have fun.

A little edit: This is all assuming that you don't want to bolster the position up anand go for a draw playing Slav Defense.

Have fun(ECO:D10–D19)(This doesn't help because you must learn almost the same amount of theory you have to learn to play Queen's Gambit Declined).
