Hub set is 250 grams. The Stan's rim is 385 grams.
This wheelset comes with wheelsmith DB15 black spokes and alloy nipples
all together becomes sub 1300 grams wheelset.
Anyone knows if I can go on this spoke count or I have to go up to 24/28 which I'm not fancy of.
I'm 170lb (75KG) and I'm not planning to go up on weight, I'm not racing, just training and like mainly to look for climbs. I'm not an aggressive rider as I said I'm not racing. My main question for you out there if this wheelset I have described is strong enough.

You could switch to Sapin CX-Ray and lower the weight...or if your budget allows maybe a Mig 45 up front.
I've got the mk2 340s rim built 28h onto old record hub. 24h on tune mig up front on a 340s mk.1. Have regretted going 24h front, you can definitely go with 20h front.
With about 4k kms on that rear wheel, I think its about right for my riding / weight - which is generally moderate to good condition roads with very occasional roads that see farm traffic which have large pot holes & uneven surfaces. Generally mixed use on hills & rolling terrain. I've needed to true it once or twice & that's just for the sake of having it running at >.5mm side to side in true - its held up pretty well.
If you want the build to last & not have to pay it attention I'd go with 28h. If you don't mind dropping it into a stand every 1-2k kms then you can go with 24h. You may have better roads & finesse than me, but that has been my experience with the build. YMMV etc...
Do get them built up as evenly as possible & with a lot of care - they are a lighter rim, so can't be quickly & roughly built up imo if the are going to stay round & true for long term.
FWIW I've also used a 32h set of mk.1 stans for parts of this past season as a training set - they've held up pretty well, have needed a bit of attention about 2k kms in, but have settled down for about another 3k kms beyond that without needing any other adjustments or truing.
I think you will like the Tune hubs though. They seem to have consistent durability, even though they are quite light.
youll likely find your parts here...
front with 20 spokes, radial laced should be 280.5mm.
rear on the Mag 180 (dunno is dimensions are the same) would be 299 L, 298 R in 3 cross. Can check for 1x,2x and radial (non drive only would be recommended....) as well.

It depends on what spoke lengths and lacing you go with:
20/24 Hole Count
-Drive Side Rear- 282mm (2x)
-Non Drive Rear-286mm (2x)
24/28 Hole Count
-Drive Side Rear-290mm (3x)
-Non Drive Rear-284mm (2x)
