Arcane Lighthouse, Bonds of Mortality and Glaring Spotlight are great options against hexproof!

Trailblazer's Boots says if opponents have nonbasics, but yeah Prowler's Helm is definitely better for budget. Cloak of Mists, Tricks of the Trade, Tuskguard Captain, and Glaring Spotlight work too.

these guys look really fun to brew with

for virtus id suggest cards that give evasion or double strike. Fireshrieker, Grappling Hook, Skeleton Key, Prowler's Helm, Glaring Spotlight, Canopy Cover, and Dauthi Embrace are all good options.

Gorm on the other hand could benefit from cards like: Assault Formation, Lure, Infiltration Lens, and Grim Contest.

you can also get a turn one virtus off of a Dark Ritual

hope this was a help, happy brewing!

I apologize for the long post below: It is not modified for standard play. Please disregard if you are playing standard only.

The best deck to counter aura hexproof (what your friend has) is generally black/green sacrifice decks. See: Grave Pact, Butcher of Malakir, , Chainer's Edict <- (Pricy), Spore Frog, or Fleshbag Marauder. Or -1/-1 effects aka Archfiend of Ifnir, combined with enablers like Lotleth Troll or Putrid Imp.

That, or a deck that has a lot of sweeper spells - Cyclonic Rift (pricy), Terminus, Living Death. Think of sweeper spells as cards that immediately level the playing field. If you're losing, just play a sweep. Instant board reset and everybody is on even playing grounds. Cheaper Alternatives: Hallowed Burial, Devastation Tide, Coastal Breach, Evacuation; just make sure it only targets creatures (not like Wash Out) because you don't want the auras returning to hand. You want to get rid of the creatures and have the auras fall off.

I don't quite agree with Atrox's approach because I know most hexproof decks run Umbra auras (Hyena Umbra), and will easily have more than 3 toughness.

Personally, TO COMPLETELY REDESIGN YOUR DECK, I would use no creatures and only spells or maybe with creatures with nice ETB (enter the battlefield) effects (Archaeomancer. This way, the sweepers don't affect you very much and will only remove your opponents' creatures. Red will be reserved for dealing damage, and blue will be reserved solely for sweeper spells & drawing cards.

Current problems with your deck:

1) It's slow. You're going to have to have multiple pingers which all take about 3 turns+ summoning sickness to start becoming active. Izzet decks are supposed to be fast & maintain control from the beginning of the game.

2) The synergy is a little too far apart - you want to have creatures pinging damage, you want to counter spells, you want creatures to get buff; there's only so much you can do with 7 cards in your hand.

3) No card draw - you'll run out of steam very very fast. Blue excels in card draw - you should make use of it!

Here are some hate cards I highly don't recommend you using because you'd force him/her to change their deck: Gomazoa, AEther Flash, Glaring Spotlight.

Modifications if you like the creature-based "ping" strategy: Consider these cards: Razorfin Hunter, Quicksilver Dagger, Sigil of Sleep, Horseshoe Crab, Pemmin's Aura, Freed from the Real.

Try to find out what your style is, then start asking for tips to point you in the right direction.

Let me know if you have questions :) (I play an aura deck)

I think Kiora, the Crashing Wave adds a lot of value to a mildrotha deck. Glaring Spotlight is also a lot of value in one card. Final Parting is two tutors for 5 mana

You may want to try out a few Glaring Spotlight's in the mainboard. Just a thought, since that's currently a sure fire way to rain on your parade is just to have a bunch of Hexproof on the other side of the table.

Darth_Savage, thanks for the suggestions!

I don't see how I can run Lingering Souls very effectively, unfortunately. Dragon Fodder is worth considering, for sure, especially if I'm going to capitalize on sacrifice payout. Smallpox fits more of a dedicated control or 8-rack, I think. I don't really want to be sacking lands when I'm trying to ramp into MoC. I think in place of Scorched Rusalka, I'll use Captain's Claws for that last point of damage, and add in Gut Shot. Rusalka looks powerful but I fear I won't have a whole lot of creatures at any given time. I like Infernal Plunge and will add it if I add Dragon Fodder. Another ramp idea that came to me was Generator Servant.

For the unblockability, I like Glaring Spotlight and Whispersilk Cloak the most. Thanks for those suggestions.

Lastly, my kill spell of choice within my play group is Go for the Throat but this is easily changed to fit your own group's style. Personally I don't run into Artifact Creatures nearly often enough for it to disappoint me.
