Default 700C Bike Front Wheel

I'd like to upgrade my '09 Fuji Team Pro from the stock Mavic Aksium Race wheelset it came with. I live in the Seattle area so pretty much any 700C Bike Front Wheel direction I go there are hills. I'm 31 y/o, 5'8", 143lbs.
I don't race but am considering it. I do mainly solo training but also some fast and/or hilly group rides. To me, fast groups are anything 20+mph. I'm working on getting faster but can't hold 25mph for 38MM Wheelset very long... yet
I would like to use this wheelset as my only set of wheels. I'd like it to be a good all-around set; provide some aero advantages 26er Carbon Fiber Frame while still being good for climbing. If/when I start racing, these are the wheels I'll use. I understand that very deep profile rims are heavier and can be affected much more by crosswinds so they're not so good for climbing. I'm just not sure when it is that a rim is too deep and is no longer 27.5er MTB Tubeless Clincher good for climbing. I'm looking for one that is good at both (I understand that a jack-of-all trades wheelset will be the master of none).
I'm considering Reynolds Attack and Assault wheelsets. If there are other wheelsets of similar quality/price that would work better for this purpose, I'm open to suggestions.
