Spellskite seems like a pretty good idea.. i also run illusions in real life and i never thought of that (you can check out my primer on my page if ya want).... some things i run differently from you is Monastery Siege the option of having the draw or stave off targeting spells comes in handy and Muddle the Mixture is good for tutoring you Lord of the Unreal and others. personally im not a fan of Illusionary Servant have you considered Illusory Angel or Halcyon Glaze?
as far as splashing thats new territory for me though and good luck fellow Illusionist!

Barring the other cards, quite outside the goal for this budget deck. <$25 is an incredible power point even with these.

Cards to consider:
Why do you have mill cards when that is not your win condition?

A playset Krovikan Mist is a must.
Chronozoa is nice if it has time to grow, albeit it's slow.

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 ?
