Honestly, Ardent + Hiding + Cata with high amounts of lock would be REALLY funny to play with ...
Clash is mainly used at distance for me, and if I'm low hp I only use it on things weak to it. Clash's mechanics are so specific the damage almost seems negligible at times.
But, then again, in PvP Ardent is VERY easily avoided. PvE though, aggressive monsters aren't very smart and if you have the lock, you'll make them kill themselves!
Meh, it was just an amusing build though, clash is still an awesome spell~
