"Budget" Bike Recommendations

I am looking to upgrade from a Cannondale Trail 6 (which I don't really like) to a bike that can handle a rougher single track. I have a pretty specific idea of what I'm looking for. Probably something from 2017-2020 (because I am on a budget). A 1x11 or 12 drivetrain, thru axels, hydraulic disks, a clutch derailleur, 29' wheels, good tires, tubeless ready, tapered head at least 120mm on the front fork, . It would be ideal if it came with a dropper post, but not required as I realize that raises the price a lot. Ideally a tapered headtube and threaded bottom bracket also. I am looking for something under $1500 and ideally under $1200, but the lower the better. Also ideally no 2021 models, because they seem to be quite expensive. Ideas of what to look for used also work (even though I know that buying a used bike is often harder and they aren't always in very good condition).
