A 3x3x2 isn't really a beginner mod :)

Half Truncated Cube
House Cube

I think most Pyraminx mods are good for beginners, as they don't require much filling.

...if you're using the older Pyraminx puzzles. I bought a couple of the newer ones to try them out, and they are hollow.
A Case Cube is also a good 'beginner' mod.

Also, the old Meffert's white ones have weaker springs in the click mechanism, than the new black ones.
The weaker springs give the white ones a better feel in my opinion.

I wouldn't put that on the same level as the other cubes. It's not exactly a beginner mod IMO.

Siamese cubes are really simple. Type b especially (1x2x3). Type a or 1x1x3 are a little more difficult, but still very easy.

I think, Siamese 3x3, Bandaged cube.
These are only needed cut and / or stick parts from 3x3.

Octagonal cube, Half-truncated cube are the next.
These are needed cut and fill the hollows.

Rhombic Dodecahedron, Trajber's Octahedron are the next of next.
These are needed cut, fill, and to make heaped parts.

Perhaps these cubes can be made easily for beginner, too.

The 2x2x6 from Rubik's 4x4x4s is pretty easy, it was my second mod.

Fused cubes are also not too hard.
