T3: Omnath, Locus of Mana
T4: tap 4 forests for 4 mana.
T5: tap same forests and have 8 mana.

Omnath doesn't keep green mana throughout turns does he!?  
sure he does
it works the way you described

Here's the rule Omnath lets you ignore:



500.4. When a step or phase ends, any unused mana left in a player's mana pool empties. This turn-based action doesn't use the stack.



Notice it cites steps and phases, not turns. What causes your mana pool to empty when your turn end is the turn's last step (cleanup step) ending, not the turn itself ending.



So Omnath's ability does keep the green mana in your mana pool when the cleanup step ends, keeping it there as one turn ends and the next starts.

You autocarded Omnath to link to his Gatherer page, but you didnt follow that link yourself before asking the question. If you had, you would have read this:









3/1/2010You can keep green mana in your mana pool indefinitely while Omnath is on the battlefield. That means if you add a green mana to your mana pool during one step or phase, you can spend it during a later step or phase, or even a later turn. Other types of mana will continue to empty from your mana pool as each step and phase ends.

That makes no sense to me. If they spelled the ability out on the card in full then it would not be allowed in a mono-black Commander deck, but because they used a keyword to save space it is allowed? ~ Tim
Yup, just like you can have Birds of paradise in a mono green deck but not Noble Hierarch. YAY COLOR IDENTITY

I love this description. Like the cows are sponges filled with milk. I can see it all Nick Parks claymation-style with the cow's eyes bugging out momentarily as a giant farmer squeezes it like a squeaky dog toy, and milk shoots out of it.
