I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'traps laid for' is the definition.
'snares' can be an answer for 'traps' ('snare' can be a synonym of 'trap'). I'm unsure of the 'laid for' bit.

'tin god' is the wordplay.
'tin' becomes 'Sn' (Sn is the chemical symbol for tin).
'god' becomes 'ares' (Greek god of war).
'sn'+'ares'='SNARES'

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for snares that I've seen before include "Traps for catching birds or animals" , "Game traps" , "Traps, enmeshes" , "Lures or entanglements" , "Traps set by Nasser" .)
