Hi, nice list ! Good point for the Creeping Trailblazer . Now I think the next step (as the others here and on reddit said) would be multiple shocklands (don't buy the checklands they rotate "soon". AND changing the weakest elementals for straight up good cards like
Have fun :p

This looks a lot like a standard deck, I would suggest checking out some UB Faeries, Death’s Shadow, Delver and Grixis control decks and taking some notes from them. You won’t be able to kill the opponent quickly enough or disrupt them long enough to do well against most modern decks.
Having more efficient threats and lowering the mana curve in general is a good idea, try Mana Leak , Logic Knot or Spell Pierce over the Sinister Sabotage , go for the full play set of Fatal Push , Thoughtseize , and Inquisition of Kozilek . Delve creatures are pretty efficient, like Gurmag Angler , you can also add Unearth with smaller cmc creatures (Death’s Shadow is a good example).
Good luck! I don’t mean to say you can’t take this to a FNM and have fun, but if you want to move the power level up some, those are a few changes that would help.

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.

I think that Masterful Replication would be really good in this deck because you could turn all of your artifact creatures into Steel Overseer s then put a bajillion counters on all of your creatures, or you could help out your board w/ a bunch of 3/3s. Maybe cut your Mishra's for some. There are much better options for counterspells instead of Thought Collapse . I would probably use Sinister Sabotage instead.
Hope this Helps.
