Default Killing someone unkillable

My DM mentioned that further on the campaign there would be an immortal enemy, he wasn't very specific but when asked he said that "it would have infinite HP". Its an campaign of mages with powers based on magery, max 5, but i think we will have access to magery 4 when facing him. My character takes pride in having the strongest attack, and i would like to keep it this way, however i have no idea how to damage someone unkillable. Note that I cant have an teleporting power, nor an "eternal stun". My main magic school is Meta magic and my main attack is a sword with super luck and an affliction that gives vulnerability to the target, aside from that i have an combo of modular ability and counter spell.

If someone could help me build an power o kill this guy i would be grateful.

Knock him out with halothane, weld him into a cage of steel reinforcing mesh, put that in a tub, and fill the tube with fast-setting concrete. When that sets, drop the lot into the sea-bottom ooze in a subduction zone. The guy will be spewed out of a volcano in a couple of hundred million years, and as crazy as a fish. But that'll be someone else's problem.

More generally: infinite hitpoints doesn't protect someone against poisoning, suffocation, drowning, or aging.

If the GM actually wants him to be unkillable, he's unkillable. The usual solution to unkillable targets is infinite duration disable effects, but depending on how 'eternal stun' is defined, that may also be ruled out. If he merely has infinite hit points, just use Shapeshift Other or Exchange Bodies to give him a form that no longer has infinite hit points.

Well, I was asking a similar question earlier today, about how to kill someone with the advantage of Unkillable 3. Would tossing them into a black hole work? Most said no, as the black hole would kill them, they would become a disembodied spirit, and then reform their body outside the black hole.

So, it really comes down to how your GM defined the "immortality" and what you and he expect you to do vs. this immortal enemy...

Some above have suggested various things that would work with Unkillable 2 (like throw him in a volcano), however that wouldn't work with Unkillable 3. Asta Kask's idea would work, but only if the GM arbitrarily created an "infinite HP" advantage beyond what's already defined in the rules.

Another tactic might be using Afflict (Morph: Tardigrade template only, Permanent +300%).

Just roll a boulder on top of him, chop a tree so it falls on him, kick him into a well, or otherwise trap him somewhere. Infinite HP won't get him free from a situation he lacks the ST to handle.

Also, if he simply has infinite HP instead of Unkillable, you can still drown him just fine.

I know that this is almost exactly not what you're asking here, but have you considered that the GM might want you to negotiate with the guy? The intended puzzle / source of fun here may not be answering the question, "How do I kill this guy?" but instead, "How do I get what I want when, no matter what, I can't kill this guy?" My advice is: Talk to your GM and resolve any genre-expectation clash before proceeding.
