Why not?

Skarner can use the mana and Skarner spams skills and attacks to max it out quickly. Also provides AD from frozen heart.

Manamune is a very situational item. Most skarner's build a philo and a hog early game to get their income going. After this investing in a tear would be pretty late and would take a very long time to get to fully stacked even with his constant casting. A tear also gives him no damage increase until it is all the way built, leaving him weak for along time. Finally, the money would be better spent on a sheen early game for damage and a frozen heart gives you all the mana you need with CDR built in. Basically it is too expensive for its benefits and delays him from building more important items.

Skarner doesn't actually need all of the mana it offers, and it doesn't offer any defensive stats.

He also doesn't benefit as much from building raw AD as other champs that might buy it do.

A glacial shroud or sheen is much cheaper and more beneficial for him, while still providing a nice mana boost.
