      There is no mention in the text that the other “Hieratic” cannot be a “Hieratic Dragon of Su”.

      Hence you can activate the effect that destroys 1 Spell or Trap Card your opponent controls, by tributing a “Hieratic Dragon of Su” in your hand as a cost.

    If I veiler SU and later is tributed, does he get to special summon the monster?

      The effect “When this card is Tributed: Special Summon 1 Dragon-Type Normal Monster from your hand, Deck, or Graveyard, and make its ATK and DEF 0.” of Hieratic dragons are not activated on the field, and hence, are unaffected by Effect Veiler.
