As the title say, some input would be nice if there is any filters that would be worth buying when using an unmodded DSLR.

I'm mainly thinking in line of UHC or CLS ?

Personally, I don't think so.  Those filters are basically for emission nebulae, and an unmodded camera is not good for those. 

 

A CLS gathers dust on my shelf.  <smile>

 

Gradient reduction is an excellent way to reduce the effects of light pollution, with any target, any camera.  It's not perfect, but it is universal.

 

Astro Pixel Processor has an excellent GR tool, labeled "light pollution".  So does PixInsight, of course, they're labeled ABE and DBE.  StarTools, labeled "WIPE".
