Well if it gets into a 4-way action these two alternatives work best, draw 1 and pat pat or draw 4 and aim for T and 9s to make a pat hand, then there is only 6 cards in the deck that saves villain or even less if they discarded them during first and second having no idea of the clowning HERO is up to.
