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.

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!
