I'm not totally sure about this, but I think this guy was updated and little harder in one of the recent updates. I have done him a bunch of times over the last few months. Before, his AoE was bad but it hardly was spammed allowing for shadows to be put back up. But on my last run, which I got my soboro on, when the mob got below around 35% he started just spamming AoE over and over. Combind with self-destruct he became nearly unbeatable. We had 12 people that run and we wiped 6 to 8 times with 2 wins. A few months before I took a group of 7 people and we never wiped on around 13 battles. Thus my theory he has been updated.

While it is possible to kill Unstable Cluster with a "balanced group", your best bet is to have at 12 characters, with multiple stuns. Since there are three bombs (Cluster) each one can Self-Destruct. This NM seems to start wanting to Self-Destruct at 50% of its HP. Each weapon usually has a Weapon Skill that stuns, I suggest focusing on using those regardless of damage output.
