All of these generate infinite mana. You then dump that into flashbacking a Fireball or something.

What doesn't work?
You flashback Noxious Revival for 2 life, put Reiterate on top of your library, pay for Manamorphose, draw Reiterate and get back 2 mana, use the 2 mana to keep flashbacking (and conspiring) rituals until you have enough to cast Reiterate and flashback a ritual that will net you more than six (Mana Geyser or Mass Hysteria, most likely).
Reiterate generates infinite mana before the flashbacked spell leaves the stack, so you don't have to worry about it getting exiled.
Don't worry about back-up wincons yet. Ironing out your plan A is always the first step.

My thoughts are that it is a good card in a vacuum, but my concern is the high CMC with the limited ramp and mana rocks in the deck it may be difficult to cast consistently. Also without blue there are Less ways to abuse Enter the Battlefield triggers repeatably. Though following up the sun's Avatar with Zacama + Ghalta, Primal Hunger on the same turn would be pretty sweet.
For a 3 color deck I typically build with 37 lands (with a high percent of dual lands) and then 10 mana rocks (Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, Gilded Lotus, Sol Ring, Coalition Relic, Chromatic Lantern are some of the Commander staples. Cheap easily acquired mana rocks include Pillar of Origins, Pyramid of the Pantheon, Star Compass, Treasure Map Flip, Cultivator's Caravan, Fellwar Stone, or Manalith
Also it seems that you have Traveler's Amulet listed twice
Last thoughts if you used lands or a way to have lands produce 2+ mana (Boros Garrison, Gruul Turf, Selesnya Sanctuary, Fertile Ground, Market Festival, New Horizons, Overgrowth, Trace of Abundance, Mana Flare/Dictate of Karametra/Heartbeat of Spring - these also doubles opponents, Mirari's Wake, Keeper of Progenitus, Regal Behemoth, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Zendikar Resurgent) and Temur Sabertooth you can use your general to go Infinite Mana then with cards like Soul of the Harvest, Elemental Bond, Garruk's Packleader) to draw your Deck play all the creatures and win with somethign that gives all your creatures haste (Anger, Fervor, Urabrask the Hidden Mass Hysteria).
I think you have inspired me to build my own version of Zacama

IMO a token strategy wouldn't make the most out of all the mana Zacama nets you. Craterhoof would just be a nice finisher in case you get to draw you're whole deck with some Sabertooth blinks.
But as it stands Kozilek, Butcher of Truth is the one way I see you can do that and for that mini-combo alone, Fires of Yavimaya (or even Concordant Crossroads and Mass Hysteria) seems like a better option since the point is just play out your whole deck, and haste is a more reliable win con than hoofs +X/+X, since it will depend on you having a few creatures able to attack already.
Something granting haste works better on its own on your deck in most situations.
Anyway, Rampaging Baloths seems like another amazing option with all the ramp, it's actually on a similar power level here with an haste enabler as it is on Omnath with the added advantage of getting the elementals. Archangel of Thune, seems amazing as well as a way to weaponize all the life gain you get from Zacama with all the extra mana.

Couple ways about it - but they usually involve Treasonous Ogre and some way to get him out turn one. The deck is a bit different these days so this needs to be updated but example would be starting hand of -
Mountain, Mana Crypt, Treasonous Ogre, Simian Spirit Guide\Lotus Petal, anything to give haste (boots or the R enchanment that gives everything haste) + any damage doubling effect (why the deck can't have to many of these). In this instance you mountani, mana crypt, toss petal and then tap your mountain and mana crypt for four mana to play ogre. Take 15 damage play harry, take 3 more dmg and play Mass Hysteria and then 12 to 15 more dmg to play some damage doubling effect. If you are at even life you can pay 3 more life to get to odd (I've gone down to 1 before) and games over.
Twice I've used the "take another turn then loose at end of game" to either win or kill everyone one (me included) on turn 2 (but some players had yet to take a turn). You really have to go all in every game /w Harry and be willing to take big risks right out the gate.

Sorry, missed Mass Hysteria
