Is глас- related to a word attested in Biblical Gothic beginning with a consonant cluster, if it's related to a word attested in Biblical Gothic at all?

It's not attested in Biblical Gothic, no.

Edit: it seems that I might have made a mistake. I expect this word to be глисматс /ˈɣliːsˌmats/. Hopefully this helps narrow it down.

Is глис- at all related to "glass" in English (from either this word or one of the related terms)?

Does the word refer to a “paper tiger”-type situation, a projection of strength without much to back it up?

Colder! It's not a metal or physical material of the sort. Try figuring out the relationship between the 2 morphemes. There are analogs in other languages.
