It's not really about how many scales you know, but rather how you use the scales. I bet I could use 3 scales more effectively than most people could use 30, because I have a better understanding of chord functions, secondary dominants, leading tones, parallel relationships, chord borrowing, modal modulation and more.

Just a thought.

For your modal learning convenience, I have charted out every scale and every mode with roots on the 6th, 5th, 4th and 3rd strings. Note values are included.

whole tone and diminished scale sound cool for metal too.

You know quite a bit of scales already. Like LTR said, if you focus on what you can accomplish with those scales you already know, I'd bet you'll be blown away by how much you can do!

Come check out my guitar forums:
