Is there any specific reason Inkmaster Solia is not included in this deck?

I'm not sure either but I personally use her in my version of the deck. She works out very well.

It's because you already have a tempo disadvantage, and playing a 7 mana 5/5 is going to make it even worse. Since it is a reno deck, you cannot consistently have Flamestrike or Firelands Portal in your hand after you play her, which is what makes her not good enough to make the cut. She's really close though, and can be used as a "budget" swap, or a flavour swap if you want to play her anyway.

replacement for alex please?

Alexstrasza is very important, as she allows you to either OTK, or to live long enough to collect burn to kill your opponent. You could go for Archmage Antonidas as your additional win condition, though your winrate against aggro decks will drop a bit.

I am missing Forbidden FlameArcane Blast and Flame Lance and for the Medivh version, I am missing Cabalist's Tome and Arcane Blast (this card is killing me, why it is everywhere?), what can I replace them with?

Also I have 800 dust, so I can craft them, but I don't know if I want to play reno mage for a long time, is it good? Or should I save for Inkmaster Solia?

Dirty Rat is an alright inclusion. Mind Control Tech is a fine swap as well. Twilight Flamecaller as an early AoE + body is helpful as well. 

Forbidden Flame isn't important enough to be crafted. Arcane Blast and Flame Lance are going to rotate out soon(ish), so it might be better to invest dust into something that will last for longer time. Inkmaster Solia isn't simply good enough to be included. She can be used as a "budget" swap for a card that you don't have, but I prefer not running the card as the value you get is sometimes poor due to the inconsistency of Reno decks. My recommendation from the cards you listed is Cabalist's Tome and while I love the card, there might be better investments in other decks you can make at the moment.

Well, before I've seen this reply, I created the deck to feel the vibe. I did the exact same replacements.

For the deck, I went off to a bad start, but I think I'll learn how to play soon enough. So far both warlock and priest equivalents served me better.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      So I love this brawlers guild and have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge up until meatball. Now I'm just bitter. I'm a frost mage but I also tried arcane and I can't touch this guy. Ive tried any and ever strategy and buff I'm able to afford and haven't even got him under 50% yet. I'm 865 so I feel like it should be possible I didn't think my gear would be a problem until rank six honestly. So any advice or help or tips or whatever I'm desperate.
