Well, if your taking a wizard on Pegasus, (and you don't mind special characters) take Balthasar gelt. Metal is one of the best lorries in SOM, and has great for casting it.

Also, I'd personally swap the general for an Arch Lector also, as the added dispel in invaluable.

For Storm of Magic I would recommend bringing at least one wizard per Fulcrum (so typically 4) although don't forget you can always bring more wizards as bound monsters.

Steam Tanks are probably not so great in Storm of Magic, although they might have some use in tarpitting enemy monsters or characters that might threaten your fulcrums. Every unit in your army needs to be able to do one of two things (a) kill wizards on fulcrums, (b) stop enemy units getting to your fulcrums. Actually killing the enemy is largely irrelevant. It's extremely different to a normal game of Warhammer!

Giants actually aren't bad at getting wizards off fulcrums though, although you're at the mercy of the random table. Worth a try anyway.
