Whilst a fair few Illusions have the ability you are talking about printed on them (see: Illusionary Servant) not all do.
Creature types no longer have inherent abilities, which changed a long time ago.
Simply, no, your Changeling will not be sacrificied when targeted, and it can also attack (the old Wall creature type used to say they could not attack)

Nice deck, I'm actually working on an Illusions deck myself.
I would not recommend Gossamer Phantasm though as it is rather weak for its mana-cost.
I would rather go with the cheaper Jace's Phantasm.
While Phantasmal Dragon is big it seems too slow, I would suggest Illusory Angel (or Illusionary Servant) instead.
Other cards worth considering:
Monastery Siege - it can actually protect your creatures or loot for more creatures.
Thassa, God of the Sea - worth considering for every mono-blue creature deck.
Here is my deck btw (it splashes White) -

I've some updates to the deck and have some new ideas I wanted to ask about:
How is Stitched Drake as a possible 3-drop for this deck ?
It is probably reasonable to get a creature in the GY during the first couple of turns and although it's not an Illusion it seems easier to cast than Illusory Angel and harder to kill than Illusionary Servant.
Another 3-drop option I thought about is Vexing Sphinx which is a big evasive beater ahead of curve which replaces itself and can cycle unnecessary Vials and Lands.
Are these two worth including ?

Illusionary Servant over AEther Figment. Also, why Clout of the Dominus? It'll make you sac most of your creatures, and even if you enchant the ones that don't get sacrificed; they'll most likely get Hexproof anyway...Why not replace those with 3 Serum Visions?

Thank you for the suggestions.
I think that Discard and removal might be more beneficial to this deck than Counterspells so I consider replacing 4x Countersquall with: 1x Duress, 1x Inquisition of Kozilek and 2x Smother (or some other removal), what do you think ?
Also, is adding 2x Bile Blight as a MD answer to Tokens (and possibly Elves) a good idea ?
The deck suffers quite a bit from self-inflicted damage with: Fetches, Shocks, Dark Confidant, Dismember (this is the reason I picked Inquisition of Kozilek over Thoughtseize for the MB), anything I can play to mitigate it ?
