Nice plan! In "The Safest Scandinavian" Kotronias suggests ...e6 after something like Qd3. If the black Q is chased away with Bf4 he puts it on b6. His plan for Black is to play e6 to prevent d5, play Nc6, Bd7 and long castle.

I'm mostly happy with the Scandinavian main lines starting with 5 Nf3 etc. from the White side, but is there any reason why the slightly hacky 5 Nge2 isn't more popular? The idea is of course Bf4, followed by Qd2/d3 and 0-0-0, or Ng3 and h4(-h5) if the Bishop goes to f5 and then g6. ...g6 can often be answered as well by Ng3 and an h-pawn push.
