How come isn't "Shaman Necromancer" a Shaman and/or a Wizard?

@Tahazzar fixed :)

added Shaman subtype

Did this also gain hexproof at some point? That isn't really in {b}'s repertoire officially.

From "Mechanical Color Pie 2017":

> "Primary: {u}
Secondary: {g}
Tertiary: {w}

> Blue both has more creatures with hexproof and more often grants it as a pseudo-counterspell. Green tends to get hexproof on larger creatures without evasion. White gets hexproof infrequently, sometimes on players, in ways that feel like it's protecting the thing."

On the other hand, in my "personal color pie" I use "lurk" as a replacement for hexproof (featured in Inhuman Skinner and Reaperwraith for example) and I shifted it to be primary in {u/b} and secondary in {g}. Given that WotC has now opted to go with "hexproof from x" I doubt they will move into this direction. However, the paths may converge if they start experimenting with "hexproof while untapped / tapped / not in combat". Then again, they are now experimenting with flash in {b} so it seems that their approaches to these problems have taken another turn altogether.

@Tahazzar its mana cost was originally {3}{b}{g}... I guess I forgot why it changed and didn't write a reason for changing it :P anyway hexproof remains as a remnant of its former green identity. Thanks for the comment though, I will definitely consider updating it.
