What weapons should I use?

    So my original Idea for the build was a lightning mage with an enchanted dagger for when I need it but now I'm wondering if I should use an enchanted bow as well so I can ground dragons then use magic to finish them off?

    If dragons are flying then lightning magic is your best bet, it hits instantly so no worrying about leading like you have with other magic and arrows.

    The dagger, if you aren't enchanting yourself, then do the Blade of Woe since it has the highest base damage of any dagger except Dragonbone, which it's equal to.

    If you make your own dagger try putting a magika absorb enchant on it, since lightning magic is pretty expensive.

    should I use smithing to make my own weapons or use ones I find

    I'd say make/find an unenchanted dagger and smith it up before enchanting it, so you don't need to grab the Arcane Blacksmith perk. 

    This method should make a stronger dagger than you'd usually find.
