In order to realize supersymmetric quantum mechanics methods on a four-dimensional classical phase space, the complexified Clifford algebra of this space is extended by deforming it with the Moyal star product in composing the components of Clifford forms. Two isospectral matrix Hamiltonians having a common bosonic part but different fermionic parts depending on four real-valued phase-space functions are obtained. The Hamiltonians are doubly intertwined via matrix-valued functions which are divisors of zero in the resulting Moyal-Clifford algebra. Two illustrative examples corresponding to Jaynes-Cummings-type models of quantum optics are presented as special cases of the method. Their spectra, eigenspinors and Wigner functions as well as their constants of motion are also obtained within the autonomous framework of deformation quantization.
