recommended flash/strobe modifiers?

I've mostly done natural light portrait photography and trying to add in more off camera flash. Actually just purchased at Godox AD200 with that in mind.

When I'm doing outdoor portrait sessions, I'm often in public parks... often in places that don't really allow light stands (at least not without getting a permit first). Thus, I've used an assistant as a hand-held light stand.

I'm often very portable during my shoots.... moving every few minutes to a new set.

With that in mind, I'm wondering what particular light modifiers people may recommend? Something very portable, that will maximize the benefit of a single off camera flash/strobe. For those that don't know the AD200 system, it will give me the choice of a bare bulb strobe style, or fresnel head/speedlight style.

I see the magmod system heavily recommended, but not sure with which modifiers/accessories.  I started also looking at foldable beauty dishes.

So a single assistant holding the light on a boom/pole... keeping it light weight, portable, easy set up/breakdown... to get the most benefit of a single light (or at least single off camera, paired maybe with an on-camera speedlight). what modifiers would you recommend?
