good finishers for infinite mana

So... lets say I have an infinite mana combo.  I am looking for good finishers.

Ideally they would:
Be able to be used the turn they are cast. (ie. if a creature, no {tap} in an activation cost)
Win on the turn used. (IOW, better to deal damage than to generate tokens)
Be colorless,
if not, use blue mana,
if not, use green mana.
Be reusable (IOW, not an instant or sorcery; or at least one with flashback)


The above are ideals... other suggestions are welcome also.

Goblin Cannon looks like it's right up your alley.
What's the combo? Might be able to work in something that feeds off of the combo more easily than a mana dump.
Stroke of Genius to draw your opponent out of cards?

A shout out to Gaming Grounds in Kent, Ohio and Gamers N Geeks in Mobile, Alabama. for all your preparation needs. - why prepping is useful, from one who has been there.
Emrakul, the Aeons Torn? He's colorless. Doesn't technically win on the turn he lands, but since he Time Walks for you, can't be countered, and is immune to almost all removal that could be thrown at him during that span, you're all but guaranteed to get a free swing for 15 plus 6 sac'd creatures. If your mana combo comes out fast enough, that should be the game. 

Bro, do you even Autocard?

Autocarding: [c]Cryptic Command[/c] = Cryptic Command

Showing somebody how to autocard: [c[b][/b]]Cryptic Command[/c] = [c]Cryptic Command[/c] = Cryptic Command

Hmmm cool.

Here are some others I came across:

Banefire is good
Red or Blue Sun's Zenith. They're sorta' reusable.

Squallmonger works in green, so long as you have more life.

Scope my YouTube channel!

Attacking the darkness since 1987, turning creatures sideways since 1994.

Golem Artisan is vulnerable to instant speed creature removal but otherwise fits your requirements.
helix pinnacle is usualy the end of most mana combos. I think milling your opponent out is a very good idea also.

Enter the Infinite then do what the 5th comment on Shivan Meteor's Gatherer Popular Comment page says, be amazed.

I was browsing through some cards in gatherer and I noticed something really odd - the transforming cards from Innistrad like Mayor of Avabruck have separate comments and ratings for each side. Isn't that totally stupid? It feels as senseless as having two different pages for each side of a split card or having different pages for Nimble Mongoose with and without threshold.

Current deck goals:

NON-AGGRO, NON-MONO RED deck (Not getting very far with it though)

Standard mono red deck for FNM next Friday

I guess this all comes down to whether you're playing a deck with infinite colourless mana, or whether you have some colour in there.

I like Emrakul or Blightsteel Colossus for colourless.
If coloured, you have so many more options;
Fanning the Flames, Banefire, Sprouting Swarm, Capsize, Debt to the Deathless, Exsanguinate, Blue Sun's Zenith, Minds Aglow, Prosperity are all possibilities.   
If a 4 player game, mindshrieker attacking 1 player, mill the second player out, killing the 1st player with damage, then fling the bird at the 3rd player for a flawless 3 man KO
