There are many tenkeyless keyboards to recommend here. But since being moderately cheap is in the topic title, and truly cheap does not exist when it comes to mechanical keyboards, I think the Cooler Master Storm Quickfire is a great choice if you can live with the branding.
I mean, I use a Filco Majestouch 2 Tenkeyless, and have tried the Cooler Master Storm Quickfire with the same mechanical switches. The Filco is about TWICE the price of the CM where I live, and I had a really hard time finding any differences between the two. This made me believe that when it comes to value in a tenkeyless keyboard, which is what you care about, the Cooler Master Storm Quickfire is really hard to beat. I would even say that when you are looking at value for mechanical keyboards in general, it is one of the better deals you can find. It also has the benefit of being available in different type of switches.
About the mechanical switches, it is always hard to recommend anything since people can be so specific in their preferences. I have not used MX clears unfortunately, but have used all other types of switches. If you tell me what you like/ dislike about the clears, and what you like/dislike about the blacks, then I can try giving a recommendation (though of course, there is no substitute for actually trying). For example, did you like the linear feel of the blacks over the tactile feel of the clears? And how about force required to press a button, did it feel better with the blacks or with the clears?
Generally I could say that both Clears and blacks require a fair amount of force to press. Being a fan of reds and browns myself, I would always opt for the latter two because they feel easier to use in gaming and more satisfying to type on as well as easier on the hands (for me). I like a light switch, and while tactility is nice, it bothers me in some games when it is too pronounced.
