Introduction

Thresh is one of my favorite and most played supports. Thresh has a very good laning phase and does a good amount of damage on his auto attacks. Thresh works very well with Junglers do to the great amount of utility that is provided in his kit. Thresh can hard peel for his ADC and shutdown enemy junglers such as Jarvan IV. Overall, Thresh is one of the best supports out there and is very fun to play.

Thresh Runes

These are basic runes for any support, but I like taking the one movement speed quint because Thresh can roam to other lanes picking off easy kills. It is better than taking the Gold per 10 because now that it is season 4, the Ancient Coin -> Talisman of Ascension, will give Thresh and any other support the gold that is necessary.

15 Utility

Summoner Sets

Ignite & Flash
I like to take ignite on Thresh because he has a great level 1 and 2 because of his Flay (E) and his Death Sentence (Q). Ignite will only help killing your opponent faster.
Exhaust & Flash
Exhaust can be good against assassins and strong ADC's in lane. I recommend taking exhaust against Vayne and Caitlyn unless you are planning on an early level 1 or 2 kill.

Thresh Items

Starting Build(s)
Default Starting Build
Doran's shield is really strong right now in the 4.2 patch and I recommend taking it. It helps Thresh's early stats and blocks 8% of auto attacks from enemies.
Final Build(s)
Standard Final Items
A sightstone is necessary for every support. It is a great item because it gives a good amount of HP and gives you some wards so you do not have to consecutively keep buying them. I take mobility boots over everything because it is easier to make plays with. The only time that I would get Ninja Tabi's or Merc Treads is if an opponent is extremely fed and you want to avoid getting fed. The rest are basic support items such as Randuin's and Banshees Veil. I have added the red trinket their for one specific reason. Since you have gotten your sightstone, you do not need the extra ward. It helps the team clear areas such as baron and dragon.

Situational Items

Ninja Tabi
You should get this if an AD opponent is fed
Mercury's Treads
You should get this if an AP opponent is fed or the enemy team has an essential amount of crowd control.
Mikael's Crucible
You should get this to peel for a carry on your team. This is a good item because it removes CC and gives you ally a little bit of HP.
Zeke's Herald
If your team is heavy AD or an ally that is AD is doing well, you could get this item. It increases their stats nicely. You could also get this item if you have a kite comp because it gives extra HP and LS.

RThe Box
I like to max E for the lower CD and the proc, but you could also max Q for a lower CD on the Death Sentence.

Skills

Damnation
Thresh can pick up souls which give him bonus AP and Armor. You should try to get these but do not overextend to hard for them while in lane.
Death Sentence
His Q is kind of like a Nautilus pull. You can use this to heavy engage in lane or to get some nice poke off. This also will cancel/disallow an enemy to autoattack.
Dark Passage
His W is probably the best utility in the game. You should use this to bring your jungler in for ganks or for disengage if someone happens to get caught out.
Flay
His Flay can know someone into or out of himself. This synergies with your Q VERY well. This basically sets up his whole combo.
The Box
Thresh's ultimate creates a box around him and applies damage and a slow to his enemies that walk threw it. Its great for team fights and peeling.

Champion Matchups

Blitzcrank
Difficulty
Favors You
The main reason that Thresh beats Blitzcrank is because he can lantern (W) his opponents back to him when hes pulls them.
Leona
Difficulty
Favors You
Thresh can flay away Leona's zenith blade and ruin her combo. However, Leona can engage with her ult at 6. You should try to win lane before she gets her ultimate.
Lulu
Difficulty
Favors Enemy
This match up can either go good or bad for thresh. The way that Lulu can be a pain to Thresh is if she hurts him at level 1. However, Thresh can beat Lulu in lane by getting good trades off and avoiding her Q
Sona
Difficulty
Favors You
This match up is a win for thresh due to his great level 1 which is way better than Sona's. I would recommend taking ignite against her and going all in against her at either level 1 or 2.

Early Game

Thresh has a very good level 2 with ignite. Depending on the match up, you could all in them early or late.

Mid Game

Thresh can look for picks and has a great utility which means that he can create dragons by pressuring the enemy team.

Late Game

Can pick people and carry teamfights. (Look below)

Teamfights

Thresh has good peel for teamfights and can also make the plays! #madlife. His Q and E can easily catch enemy carries which can essential carry the teamfights. Thresh can peel for his carries with his E and R also.

Conclusion

By far, Thresh is the most fun and OP support hero in the game currently. (4.2 Patch) He does well against most lanes and helps the team greatly.
