What do you mean by "Running out of mana?" At some point you will, that is inevitable, the question is what did you do with your mana? At what point is this vital?
Clarity can solve it yes, but you do want your exhaust for a tryndamere who is raping your face or to slow a runner down. Ignite can be traded in, altho you miss the possibility of a first kill.
If you open with doran, just harass with null sphere (and last hit with auto attack) or last hit with null sphere if you have problems. Don't waste it tho, if the enemy has heavy health regen and your allie is not a good harasser save your mana for a quick kill.
As soon as you get your rod of ages you should have a serious amount of mana. More than enough to pull of a kill.
Anyway, all I can say is: Clarity is not needed at all.
