Search 'subjunctive triggers' on google, for spanish obviously haha. I did A level Spanish and got an A subjunctive really isnt that hard to use once you get the basics.

Dudo que + subj
Es important/imprescindible que + subj
Es necesario que + subj

You could also use 'si sentences'

Si fuera/tuviera + conditional

Ojalá (+ present subjunctive for possible events, + imperfect subjunctive for virtually impossible or impossible events)

exactly right ^

an example would be:

Si fuera rico compraría una casa enorme!

meaning:

If I was rich I would buy a massive/huge house!

I'm going to nitpick your English - you need the imperfect subjunctive there too.

Don't worry - most people don't know English has a subjunctive.

Negative expressions usually trigger the subjunctive in the present tense: "No creo que pueda ir a la fiesta", "Dudo que acabe esta redacción a tiempo" etc.
