I'm at level 25 now, so starting to think about champs that I want to use regularly to get better at and then move into ranked with them. What's a good amount of champs to have as 'mains'?

Depends on how expensive the champions you bought are.

If you want to grow up to be as good as CenaxKikia, probably 0.

Frankly, being really good with one champion could be enough to make your elo climb. There are many champions that can do several roles and can power through most match-ups in lane.

A good goal though is to be competent in at least two champions for each role.

I don't see how that matters?

You must master at least 10 champs before playing ranked.

However, I'd extend that list to 14.

My advice:
Top Main
Counter for a common counter to your Top main
Counter for your top main
Top Tank (If your main top is a jungle
Mid main
Counter for a common counter to your Mid main
Counter for your Mid main
Jungle Main
Other Jungle (If your jungle main is a tank, a non-tank)
ADC Main
Backup ADC (for use against your ADC if they pick it)
Main Support
Backup Support

So my list would be:
Rengar (Beats Pantheon)
Pantheon (Beats Gangplank)
Mordekaizer (Beats Diana)
Talon (Beats Malzahar, and also is useful as a counter to plenty of other mid champs)

Though, I add some other choices to the list in order to abuse opponents mistakes when banning (Shen, Maliphite), and to counter common champs (Vlad against Maliphite/Shen. Jayce against Darius/Shen, Kassadin against various mid champs, Renekton against various top champs, Warwick when he has synergy with lane)
