Step 1: Tezzeret -3 for Rings of Brighthearth
Step 2: Activate Aminatou's -1 targeting Tezzeret. It reenters with 4 loyalty and a new activation.
Step 3: -4 Tezzeret and copy the trigger with Rings to find Basalt Monolith and Goblin Cannon , activated Monolith and copy it to get 6 mana for 5, rinse and repeat to get infinite mana, then stack the triggers on Cannon in response to each other to get infinite damage on each opponent.
Step 4: Profit!

Your points are valid, so let me say this:
For players getting into cEDH, the combo is a great place to start with Aminatou. I believe that the combo can win against the majority of decks, with Hermit Druid and things like Kess and Gitrog being unwinnable. Even the Stasis combo is fragile. But from a budget standpoint, Felidar Guardian is $0.31, and Altar of the Brood is only $2.55. Whereas the aforementioned Stasis combo is $4.42 for just Stasis, and the more mana intensive Teferi is $15.99.
My point is, the Cat combo is reliable enough to win a fair amount more games when it executes the combo than losses after execution. It has merit as a budget finisher, which leaves more money for the necessary tutors and mana to make it happen.

Megalomania We use Codex Shredder as a backup mill alternative in case Cannon gets hit. Shredder can be accessed through similar steps we take in the Cannon combo and requires infinite mana generated by Rings of Brighthearth and Basalt Monolith, we then tap Shredder, and then dump our infinite mana back into Rings to copy the mill ability for an arbitrarily large number and deck out our opponents. This method can be cleaner, but it can also get tricky if our opponents have pesky Eldrazi like Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre in their decks, which is why Goblin Cannon is our go-to win condition. Codex Shredder's second ability can also be used to retrieve any of our combo pieces as long as we don't have a Rest in Peace exiling our graveyard if something goes interupted. One can opt for slotting Helm of Obedience into the deck as well, but we found that to be clunkier and not as efficient in practice. As the deck stands right now, a Tezzeret resolving almost ensures a win as long as our opponents don't have artifact removal in hand.
Thank you for your feedback on the list by the way! SynergyBuild has been working hard developing this combo and putting this primer together. As of right now we are working on gathering data for cEDH matchups while also fleshing out and optimizing the 99 in the process. We are fans of your take on Aminatou Stax and admittedly I took a lot of inspiration from your list on the original rendition of my personal decklist, except I wanted to use some more oppressive effects which made the development for a resilient win condition challenging. Rule of Law and Arcane Laboratory combined with ETB hate like Torpor Orb and Humility really limit the streamline winning combos we would otherwise have access to. I would like to see more combos and infinite mana generators make their way into the deck, but it's not easy finding them when we want them to both be functional in the presence of all of our other hate pieces as well as be useful and productive toward the gameplan when not in the presence of other combo pieces. We are so close to getting the deck where it really wants to be and we greatly appreciate the feedback and support.

I’ve seen some Aminatou decks use Tezzeret the Seeker , Rings of Brighthearth and Goblin Cannon as the main win con. This is a lot easier to assemble than your current options since you can combo off with only Aminatou and Tezz in play.

griffstick actually, it was meant to be abused like that. Rocket Launcher was the original, but has such unruly text that Goblin Cannon became the 'fixed' one without delayed triggers, "summoning sickness," and stuff.

So sweet. I love how abused the wording of Goblin Cannon. Wizards of the coast must be looking back at this card today and going "oops, better not make this mistake again!" lol. Awesome.

Staff of Domination, while not an outlet itself, will allow you to dig for an actual win condition.

Currently, I need an infinite mana outlet. This combo is in an esper deck, the outlet must be an artifact, and it also has to be 4 cmc or less. Whetstone, and Goblin Cannon both work, but neither are good cards outside of the combo, so I am left with these dead outlets, are there any outlets that have inherit value outside of the combo?
BTW my infinite mana combo gives colorless mana.
