Just have to remember this rule:

Make sure everyone is playing this rule... If your Sunfire, Thornmail, Auto-Atk (for a phage proc) or Random Spell (for a Rylai's Proc). Kills the Seeker.. it is going to be -1.
Now... Sunfire in hiders..is not such a big threat...
Thornmail... when you are an AutoAttacker... should hurt... a lot.. :/
But... A General Rule for Countering Thornmail is?...
LifeSteal... With enough Lifesteal the damage taken by thormail is healed. The only prob would be armor...so some armor penetration...
But really, overall getting tanky, using CC or trying to burst hiders... is generaly a bad idea... you can get away with it on first levels... but later in game... your gonna have to run... I always see hiders winning for 2 Reasons:
They can HIDE... like actually be very sneaky and never get caught
They can RUN like Speedy Gonzalez.
Actives from Youmuu's Ghostblade, Shurelya's Reverie, Summoner Speel Ghost, Flash, Any Speed Steroid Item and or Skill... really help a lot... as hider/seeker
And as Seeker remember TEAMWORK...when seeker do not stick together its so easy for Hiders to get away and make you lose precious time.
Have Fun! Dont Troll e_e
