So combine the two! Grandstand with a d4 distinction, you step up the lowest die in the doom pool, and add another one!
And, as Doc Hydrogen suggested, have your villains use those d6s, so the doom pool consists of d8s and d10s! In addition, don't forget that when you add a doom die to a villain's action, you can give a PP to the player the villain rolled against to put that die back into the doom pool! Spend the d6s, but don't put 'em back in, but keep those d8s/d10s so you can step them up to d12s!
Could the watcher character "split his attention" and achieve both stress and add to the doom pool (at a cost of d6 to the doom pool, essentially stepping up a die should the effect die be higher than a d6)?
