Clefable can learn the move Belly drum and can have the ability magic guard.

since magic guard seems to only protect from indirect-damage which is what belly drum is, I was wondering if I can get 4x attack on my clefable and not lose half my health right off the bat.

No unfortunately Magic Guard does not prevent a Pokémon from cutting its HP, such as with Belly Drum, Substitute, or Curse when used by a Ghost type.

Source: Experience and Here.

Hope I helped :)
