So how many magic dice, or items does a typical army have ? When I made my list I pictured having to overcome a mountain of dispel dice and scrolls.

no, I would never set-up my army to counter a specific force.

I remember seeing dwarves, orks, skaven, and empire at my local game store.

I assumed that every army would be generating at least 10 dispel dice so I figured I would try to get at least a few summonings in.

Dwarves, oddly enough, are magic vulnerable.

Cool, so what should I use with my vampire character ? Is a super high point general normal ? only because I almost want to switch out the uber blood dragon, and maybe play the more ghoulish and cheap striggoi (Spelling ?) and try to buy another squad of black knights.

Black Knights ain't very strigoi. You can do it, but its out of character.
