I don't think they are directly related, maybe similar. Because I have solved the iBook problem by activating my HD4000 as backup Metal renderer but Shadow Tactics still have the same issue.

I think this is related to the problem with ibooks when after opening the book instead of the text you only see grey/white window. Yes it is definitely caused by the web driver and I don't think there is a resolution for it yet.

Interesting statement. Please explain how you made this "backup Metal renderer" happen.

Just enable your iGPU, OS X defaults to it for Metal rendering then.
But even that isn't really neccessary as there's a fix for the glitches now.

I have a MacPro (early 2009) , 2x3.06ghz 6 core, 64gb ram, with a GTX 980ti. It was running fine with the NVIDIA drivers with macOS 10.12.4 well I ran the new update and now Im stuck with a black screen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

^^ What Nvidia driver version did you used before that was working? I also have a MacPro 4,1 flashed to 5,1 with a 980Ti and two drivers I've tried in Sierra didn't work.

How do i disable this?
Just remove "nvda_drv=1" from your clover config file if it is present in the boot arguments.
For simplicity I would recomment loading it with Clover Configurator.

Try injecting a fake ID for Nvidia (0x00000000). Go Devices in Clover Configurator.

Code:
...
    <key>Devices</key>
    <dict>
        ...
        <key>FakeID</key>
        <dict>
            <key>NVidia</key>
            <string>0x00000000</string>
        </dict>
        ...
    </dict>
    ...
