THIS IS NOT AN ORIGINAL HERO CONCEPT.

So, he's the king of spiders. He's also the lord of webs.

With webs aplenty, Arachnus shoots webs to slow his prey, shoots more webs to kill his enemies, and even more webs to cover the battlefields in webs, and yet even more webs to safely perch above the battlefield of webs. Arachnus is one of a kind though, with webs that can not be cut by steel, or burnt by a flame,(Point being, they cannot be destroyed by anything) and with these webs he will bring vengeance to his fallen brethren of Old Web City. Determined to destroy the Elves, and vowing not to team with the Icespinner(More Details next time), the King of Spiders and Lord of Webs, Arachnus, has decided to fight with the Undead to stay close to those which he had lost from the hands of the Blazing Priest.

Thanks to jamn for the lore.
Innate- Adds an effect to the next web spell he uses.

Skill 1- Web
He shoots a web, like an AoE slow. If you enter the web, you get slowed.
Skill 2- Web that pulls them back
Arachnus shoots a web, it's like a skill shot that pulls enemies back
Skill 3- Web
Shoots a web, slows people, and little spiders come out
Skill 4- Web
Shoots a web, pulls you to an area. Like a blink skill, but with webs.
Skill 5- Big Web
He shoots a lot of webs, damaging all enemy heroes globally. It also takes away the cooldowns on his other webs, so he can shoot more webs.

TALENTS:
Create More Webs
Juggling
Piano
Magic Trick

Artists representation of Arachnus.

Awesome hero idea, but two problems. No innate, no 4th basic skill.

Edit - Sorry didn't notice the innate.

That isn't the type of quality backstory EotA heroes require. That's just a hero class name.

Little bit of Lore:

King of the City of Webs, New Web City, Arachnus the King of Spiders watched as his old home Old Web City was quickly incinerated by,The Blazing Priest, Bhekar Ro. After this horrible act, Arachnus went from being just Lord of the Webs to being crowned the one and only King of Spiders. With webs aplenty, Arachnus shoots webs to slow his prey, shoots more webs to kill his enemies, and even more webs to cover the battlefields in webs, and yet even more webs to safely perch above the battlefield of webs. Arachnus is one of a kind though, with webs that can not be cut by steel, or burnt by a flame,(Point being, they cannot be destroyed by anything) and with these webs he will bring vengeance to his fallen brethren of Old Web City. Determined to destroy the Elves, and vowing not to team with the Icespinner(More Details next time), the King of Spiders and Lord of Webs, Arachnus, has decided to fight with the Undead to stay close to those which he had lost from the hands of the Blazing Priest.

Can we go a few versions where they work perfectly before worry about wasting our time on them?

I'm liking this hero so far, seems both original and fun to play. Perhaps instead of making EotA for SC2, you could make a more Arachnus centered map further explaining his back story, going through the destruction of Old Web City and the rising of New Web City?

You just reminded me of the first (and only) custom campaign I played for WC3. Some strange spider based campaign. I don't remember much except one of the spider hero's ults was to turn into a dragon.

EDIT:
Here's one of Arachnus' many talents. He is a world renown juggler.
I have pictures for all three of levels of his talent.

Another talent idea

Create More Webs: Arachnus, King of Spiders, Lord of Webs, is the world's quickest webmaker.
On cast of a spell, Arachnus, King of Spiders, Lord of Webs, has a 4/8/12% chance to create a web that can be used to ensnare enemy heroes.

I think he should use his venom fangs to create poison webs to poison his enemies while webbing them. Maybe a talent that upgrades all webs with poison?
