The spider she refers to is most likely not a god, but a creature who serves the Shadow Isle Kings will.
Think of Elise as a recruiter, who lures "followers" to the Isles to be eaten, which in turn creates spirits or souls (w/e) for Yorick to promote through the levels of undeath, which in turn join Mordekaisers/Hecarims army, or are forced to sing for Karthus' ult (lul).
However, the little information we know about the Shadow Isle's King speaks about his control over the realm of the dead, which chalks him up to godlike.
