Create your opening repertoire by picking up lines you like from the Pirc, Modern, Philidor, Old Indian, King Indian, Hippopotamus, Rat Defense (while having more possibilities to avoid the lines you don't trust). It is too early to characterize this repertoire or the kind of players using it. FTB notes choumicha seems to contradict himself with his own efforts to label this collection of various branches -- both colors have great flexibility -- by many strong players. Usually supporters of 1..d6 appreciate:
-little provocations (as shown by players like Bent Larsen, Anthony Miles, Tigran Petrosian, Julian Hodgson, Michael Basman, Rainer Schlenker, Stefan Bücker, Baadur Jobava and Jules Welling -to have "The space DISadvantage", appreciate Reti's theory about controlling versus occupying space, prefer the counterattack above blunt attacks and gambits -are not afraid for an early exchange of queens also giving up the right to castle after 1.d4 d6 2.c4 e5 3.dxe dxe4.QxQ KxQ and 1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 e5 (starting off as a Pirc or 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 Nf6 in the Philidor sequence) 4.dxe5 dxe5 5.Qxd8+ Kxd8.
