How to Use the mainline Stonewall defense in chess

The move order 1.d4 d5 2.e3 Nf6 3.Bd3 e6 4.Nd2 c5 5.c3 Bd6 is very annoying because it discourages the key move f2-f4. Instead, White should play a different opening. He can enter a reversed Meran Defense with 6.dxc5, or a Colle System with 6.Ngf3.

Matt talks a little bit about the dangers of the Colle position that arises and suggests that White try the rare 8.h3!?
