i dont play neeko, but i assume you use your clone to bait out CC or other stuff.
as for the shields, just get close enough to have a mexican standoff, but far enough that you are not in danger of getting engaged on. if they blow their shields preemtively then you flash R and W in. may i reccomend glacial augment builds too? they pretty much make it impossible for people to run away from you.
