When you accentuate stall there is no need for synergy with your cleaner. You rather have to take out or weaken its checks and counters to the point you can fishish them. Synergy within your stall core should be your focus.
Cloyster's weakness against priority moves is probably its biggest flaw, so you probably should keep your eyes open for Scizor, Breelom and Conkeldurr. While Scizor is stopped cold by Jellicent (and maybe Heatran, should you not switch into Superpower), and Conkeldurr may not break through Jellicent without Payback, Technician Breloom can deal massive damage to your team. My two bets are on Skarmory and Celebi, both having recovery and entry hazards to contribute. Skarmory additionally has phazing while Celebi has Heal Bell.
