Sorry, wasn't trying to come across snarky.
Chief, I haven't seen unlock spells either. My character is basically a spell-sword at this point.
If we're going by Oblivion's classes, I'd say my character is closest to a Battlemage. Destruction, Single-handed weapons, and Conjuration are by far my most-used skills, with Alteration taking second place. I have yet to find a weapon that is better than a bound sword once you factor in the conjuration perks, though obviously there are differences in the way blade, maces, axes, etc. handle and the various side-effects of their power attacks. I've got my eye out for a bind mace spell. In a typical fight, I just backpeddle and flamethrow and then power attack when they catch up with me.
If it's a mob, or I'm anticipating a mob, I'll try to use oak flesh and set a rune trap. Summon Flame Atronach is also extremely handy. Their aim is much better than mine
