Advice for playing drums live.

I'm starting a sort of electro-punk band.
The idea is to use all electro, robot type sounds but play it all as live as possible by using stuff like the arpeggiator.

I'm wondering does anyone have any ideas for the most versatile way to play drums live in reason 5.
Id like to be able to trigger drums with a midi pad as normal, but also trigger whole drum fills or hold down the button to have the drum beat repeat at a certain rate. Also id like to be able to trigger on and off some beats like a hi-hat going every bar and so on.
I have some ideas for how to do this myself, but I was wondering what ye think. I want to give myself as much freedom to mess around as possible but also keep the possibility for triggering automated stuff.
