[AUTO](VC/RC):Blaze (At the beginning of each of your attack, if the number of rear-guards you have is greater than your opponent's, your vanguard becomes blazing until end of turn) [AUTO](VC/RC):[Counter Blast (1)] When your other unit is placed in the same column as this unit, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose one of your opponent's rear-guards in the same column as this unit, and retire it. [CONT](VC/RC):If your vanguard is blazing, and you have a "Escort Dragon Attendant, Reas" in the same column as this unit, this unit gets [Power]+4000.

Rating: 2.5

Dragon Fang Chain-shots, Sutherland
It's supposed to be the reason to run Reas at all. Sutherland has 3 skills, all active on VG or RG circle: there's Blaze, another skill that allows you to retire a unit for CB1 if a unit is called to the same column as Sutherland, and the chosen retire target is in the same column as Sutherland, and a third giving him 4k if Attendant Reas is boosting him.
So good points? He's 21k with Reas, he gets to murder a card at least once, odds are good, and he isn't GB1 restricted.
Unfortunate that he'll be pretty much overshadowed by more inherently stable options for Grade 3 bosses. Overlords have other Overlords...Blademaster might like this, but his redundancy when retiring on top of Blademaster's already good retire engine is pretty glaring. As for columns, the Soul is better off spent elsewhere, not on Reas.
Pass this over unless money's tight. You can do better.

This unit is a supplementary Grade 3 for Blademaster, and it beats out the other Grade 3s you can run. Basuit is only a beatstick, where Sutherland is a beatstick with a retire effect. Galgi has no rearguard circle effects, and unlike Harmony Bermuda's Liddy, can't actually whiff out your main Grade 3 due to Blademaster not having the Blaze keyword. And Overlords should only be ran with Overlords. Legend/Blademaster is cute, but can be cumbersome because:

A) Your Defeat Flare isn't doing anything if a non-Overlord is being attacked

B) You're not running enough Overlords to be consistently prepared for your The Ace turns.

So, Surtherland goes back to Perdition-style column-based retirement, while also being kind of like a Harmony unit. Combined with Reas, who's also at home in Blademaster.dek, you get a 21k column. Even though Blademaster is a control deck, many clan's rearguard columns are forcing 15k shield or more due to the advent of G-Guards, and Blademaster.dek needs to keep up in that regard as well. 

This throwback of a unit has a place in Blademaster or any random budget (Blaze) deck you make.
