Tested and disproved. Your clone's Guardian Angel has no impact on your own, so if your clown dies and is revived, you can still be revived from your "real" GA. Note that your clone will not explode if he's revived, however.
I'm personally a fan of GA as it allows you to be much more aggressive when you have it up. You're a high priority target if they know that deceive is on cooldown, so GA can really mess with them. I believe that GA was designed for squishies, not for tanks.
