How does Shroud work?

I have just got Indomitable Archangel and was wondering if it was worth splashing white into am artifact deck in order to use it?
702.17a Shroud is a static ability. “Shroud” means “This permanent or player can’t be the target of
spells or abilities.”


It's similar to hexproof, only it prevents you from targeting your own things as well.

Rules Advisor

if a permanent has Shroud it can't be targetted

something only targets if it actually uses the word "target" either on the card or in the rules (for example for Aura spells or the Equip ability)

so it would protect your artifacts from Shatter, but not from Shatterstorm
