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.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.

      Fight Promoter is promoting Hearthstone by giving itself away! Ok, that didn't make sense, but the point is everyone gets a fee card for just logging in this Saturday!
      Blizzard (source)
      Yeah, we can get you a card. Really! Log in to Hearthstone on Saturday, May 20, to get a Fight Promoter card for free!

      No catch, just a free card--so don’t miss out.
      We’ll see you in the tavern!

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding. We cleared through Nighthold heroic a number of months ago and need some more people in order to jump into mythic. Besides raiding our friendly bunch of members enjoy running mythic+ on daily basis, helping out with world quests among other things. Our discord is usually filled with members for daily banter and weekly fun. If you enjoy all that, you most certainly will enjoy your stay in Volatile.
      Who are we looking for?
      We're primarily looking for ranged DPS to fill out the roster. At this time we are full on tanks and healers.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - MM Hunter, Warlock and Shadow Priest but all classes will be considered
      Melee DPS - Closed
      Overall we're looking for people with a good knowledge of their class/spec who know how to improve their gameplay. Being fairly thick skinned and being able to accept constructive criticism, as well as the occasional jab from some of our more 'outspoken' members, is a big plus too.
      When do we raid?
      We raid two times a week as standard, we often have an additional raid day if necessary. See raid times below. 
      Thursday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Monday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Tuesday: 8pm - 11pm (Additional day)
      Application process:
      We believe the best way to get to know if someone is right for the guild is just to have a chat, rather than go through a long application process. So we'll have a chat, look at logs and possibly run some M+ to get to know each other. If you're interested in joining our mythic raid team, contact any of the following:
