I'm really digging the effort to give magic classes a mix approach; Nuns with Axes, Pegusi with spells. . . all we need now are some armored Mages

The only question is, which of the two will it be? If they use swords/tomes, I would expect them to just be called Mage Knights, but they aren't. Axes seem "darker" to me: I was expecting a Dark Mage promotion to use them, but with that class apparently absent, the weapon type falls here. Meanwhile, swords/tomes are already used by the Strategist and any classes it may promote to, and there are other classes that may share swords/tomes to bring them as an option for other characters: I've seen Trickster proposed as such a class, and the suggestion does sound plausible. Not much else for Thieves to do, after all. So it all fits if it looks like this:
Mage (tome) --> Sage (tome/staff) / Dark Knight (axe/tome)
As for Troubadours, their two promotions will certainly mirror the two versions of the Valkyrie class: one promotion with swords/staffs, one with tomes/staffs. A Troubadour promotion, I think, could be differentiated from Sage much better than a separate Mage promotion could be, as we saw with the Valkyrie class in FE6/7.

Not likely. We've never seen a horse to pegasus promotion, and there are two perfectly good class options the Troubadour could take as promotions.
I can see Troubadours promoting to FalconKnight and Valkyrie, since FalconKnights have staves this time around.
Observe that Battle Monk and Battle Cleric use axes/staffs. One might expect them to use something different, perhaps swords. So why would they not use swords/staffs? Because swords/staffs is a combination already taken, by a Troubadour promotion. Especially having seen the combination so many times before, I can't imagine that IS would include lances/staffs and axes/staffs but not swords/staffs in their most frequent pairing.
So could Troubadour promote to Valkyrie and gain swords or promote to Falcon Knight and gain lances and wings? Doesn't sound like the most interesting of choices, not when every other magic class so far has had the choice between becoming a tomes/staffs user and becoming a magic/weapon hybrid user.

No. There's no reason why that would influence this.
But, wasn't it the same Dark Knight that was an unused class in FE3?

It's this game's mage knight, yeah.
Dark Knight's a confirmed class right? He's the guy on the horse we see in some of the FMV trailers? Kinda reminds me of Lann's Dark Crest armor.

I like to have an assortment of classes, like Swordmasters, Assassins, Heros, Sniper, Sages, Generals, etc.
