Special Summon this card as an Effect Monster (Rock-Type/EARTH/Level 7/ATK 0/DEF 2500). (This card is also still a Trap Card.) If Summoned this way, this card cannot be targeted by an opponent's card effects while you control another Trap Card that is a monster. If a card is Special Summoned from your Spell & Trap Zone to the Monster Zone while this card is a monster: You can target 1 card on the field; destroy it.
Here are some Continuous Trap cards that summon themselves as monsters. Upon summoning they will trigger Statue of Anguish Pattern’s removal effect and while on the field will serve as its protection.
Cyber Shadow Gardna is good because he can repeatedly by summoned and trigger the Statue of Anguish Pattern’s removal effect.
Tiki Soul and Tiki Curse are great for supporting Continuous Trap cards that summon themselves as Monsters. Tiki Curse destroys anything Continuous Trap Monsters battle, while Tiki Soul lets you reuse Continuous Trap Monsters when they are destroyed.
Uria, Lord of Searing Flames is best used in a deck filled with Continuous Trap cards where he can easily be summoned and gain a ridiculous amount of attack.
With Advance Force on the field, Statue of Anguish Pattern can be the sole tribute for a level-7 or higher monster.
