Special Summon this card as an Effect Monster (Fiend-Type/DARK/Level 6/ATK 1000/DEF 2400). (This card is also still a Trap Card.) If Summoned this way: You can discard 1 card, then declare 1 Attribute; this card becomes that Attribute, and can be treated as 2 Tributes for the Tribute Summon of a monster with the same Attribute as this card. If this card was Summoned this way, you cannot Special Summon monsters, except monsters with this card's Attribute.

Ancient Gear monsters need to Tribute Summon some of their best monsters like Ancient Gear Golem. They can sometimes be slow to put out monsters on the field without their newer support, so The First Monarch can be helpful as tribute fodder.
The First Monarch can ease the summoning of a DIVINE monster if you change his attribute to DIVINE. This is useful since the Egyptian Gods can usually only be summoned through Tribute Summon.
With Advance Force on the field, The First Monarch can be the sole tribute for a level-7 or higher monster.
