Izzet generally doesn't struggle against aggro. Especially right now. My advice is that if you want to give this deck flavor, you're looking at Arclight Phoenix , Crackling Drake , Erratic Cyclops , and Guttersnipe .

What I'm curious about is where your removal is. I suggest flipping into midrange. It's flexible and what Izzet does best. For your instants and sorceries I suggest 2x Lava Coil , 3x Jaya's Greeting , 3x Sinister Sabotage , 4x Opt , 2-3x Mission Briefing , and 2x Ral's Outburst over your current noncreature spells. Why aren't you playing at least one copy of Chemister's Insight ?

Your curve is too saturated to be an "aggro" deck, which is best defined by keeping your curve low to outpace your opponent through damage. What you should consider is changing into midrange, as it's more of what this deck is seeking to perform as.

My last note is that you are playing some bad cards. Dreadhorde Twins , Invading Manticore , Bone to Ash , Goblin Gathering , No Escape , Nahiri, Storm of Stone , Sleep Paralysis , and Slimebind . Cards (not already mentioned) that are bad in an aggro deck are Murmuring Mystic , Shivan Dragon (seriously not a good card), your whole counterspell suite, the Chandras, and Izzet Guildgate will slow you down behind your opponents.

Forgot to add this and I can't edit the comment...

I would take out Bone to Ash and Desperate Ritual . The first one is just too limited since it can only counter creatures and since you have so many burn spells you don't really need to counter those to begin with. If you still want to put a counter spell I would place Unwind in that slot. As for Desperate Ritual , you don't play any other Arcane spell and alone it doesn't really do much in my opinion, I would swap it out with Primal Amulet  Flip or one of the cards I suggested. Lastly I would swap any of the counterspells you play with Insidious Will because of it's versatility.

Just thought I should let you know, but you can't play Discovery / Dispersal in this deck due to the black mana symbols.

I also have some suggestions:

I hope that I could be of some help!

Mana Leak, Last Word, Wizard's Retort, Overwhelming Denial, Devious Cover-Up, Desertion, Countervailing Winds, Bone to Ash, and Countermand are all some counterspells you don't have in here if you want more counters.

Weight of Memory is killer with Drowned Secrets and Psychic Corrosion. I've tried running a similar deck in mono blue, and overall it was just too slow outside of landing a perfect curve. I would recommend more jump-start card draw to replace Bone to Ash and maybe Blink of an Eye instead of all the Unexplained Disappearance or Disperse. More card draw will inevitably speed up the process with Psychic Corrosion.

I know it's just your sideboard, but Essence Scatter is a much better option than Bone to Ash.

Anyone have thoughts on splashing blue for Bone to Ash or Cancel for some added protection?

might be a good reason for this but if your plan is to mill why not play Patient Rebuilding. besides that you might want to run a bit more defensive cards (that can draw cards) like Blink of an Eye or Bone to Ash. More as a sideboard idea but when playing against creature heavy decks Time of Ice and Merfolk Trickster might be a cool idea.
