don't target the tank. Kill squishies first, then gang up on the tank.

Last Whisper, Lifesteal of some kind, Banshees veil.
Also not hitting the tank unless hes the only possible target, or you will get dropped by their dps anyway.

And sometimes the squishies even get thornmail, but i always get a negatron cloak atleast to counter the 35% magic attack back at me.

yeah, i'd say go for bloodrazor, or if you've got decent health in your build maybe an atmas, or maybe a last whisper. All add magic damage, which gets around both the armor and returned damage issue.

Alternatively, just don't attack the tank.

if they are super tanky then ignore them and lifesteal off someone else and they wont be able to hurt you
use your abilities instead of auto

the best way to handle thornmail is to let the mage handle it and pick a different target.

you can: get a bit of MR, get Malady/Bloodrazer/Wit's End/SoTD/Last Whisper/Black Cleaver, Lifesteal, use on hit like Teemo's poison, etc.

Best advice here: Don't focus the tank. If it's a shen and he keeps taunting you, giving you no choice in the matter, BV is your friend.
