Would a magic based thornmail be justifiable?

Before the Zhyona's change, a magic thornmail that returned % damage as physical would pretty much render casters useless due their generally squishy natures.
But now that we have survive all Hourglass and the big AP overkill deathcap, would riot need to implement more items in order to keep casters in check?

I'm not saying that such an items is needed (I personally think the current Magic res items are fine), but just want to know the general community thoughts about this.

Banshee's Veil isn't enough?

Casters are on par with right click champs? How will the under-privileged kids without keyboards play?

Thornmail is already a very very niche item. Overall randuins is a far better way to build up against physical damage (almost as much armor, 300 more HP, passive that RNGs to make them attack slower, active that makes them attack slower).

If a Thormail for magic damage were ever implemented, it would literally make all nukers useless.

Just a better variety of mr items so yes it probably would, but I have been thinking this for quite some time. This will come though.... Riot is just uber slow when it comes to adding to the game. The hextech was a great addition and serves its purpose great so I feel others will be on the way.

Not enough tank MR items, honestly. When I see a team that is 5 casters or 5 ap champs, i get mercs, HoG, aegis, banshees, fon... don't know what to get after that
