So I have 150 bucks, I need some effects for my poor roland 15x. I can't decide if it's worth it to buy a tube screamer, or blues pedal. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I play a Fender Stratocaster, and I love classic rock and blues.

Save it and put it towards a better amp, like an Epiphone Valve Junior, that sounds like it would suit you perfectly.

That's what I was going to say. You can get a VJ for under $150. Then continue saving for an OD pedal.

This. If you like some classic blues and classic rock, the Fender Blues Jr. would suit you so I'd save up for that.
my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps

I have the Roland cube 15x now, and I just want to be able to get some new sounds. I feel like it's either heavily distorted or just a clean guitar tone. And the clean isn't anything to brag about!

Get the VJ, it would be absolutely perfect for what you play, seriously.

As eveyone else said, get the VJ, your Cube will not react well to pedals for one thing.

New amp and get a Zoom G1 , it's dirt cheap and is an incredibly good multi efects processor.
Bought one for about 50$ , and you can take the other 100$ , save up a bit (30-50$) and buy the VJ or another decent amp.

Yes, definitely the Zoom G1 or G1X. Tons of different sounds and patches. Can't go wrong.

Save up for a Fender Blues Jr. I've played those before and they are great for blues and classic rock. Just what you're looking for.

It's great for blues, and rock.

Yeah, upgrade your amp before you buy a pedal. IMHO save up and get a 30w tube amp, you'll be able to play on it for quite a while and it should get loud enough for a band situation. If you get a pedal you're just gonna have the same old amp tones.
