I stopped watching after you passed a 4th (!) pick Blind with Anger. That card is literally just Ray of Command, one of the best limited cards ever printed, nearly a guaranteed 2 for 1 removal spell for only 4 mana. In Kamigawa, people will regularly splash Blind with Anger in any deck because it is so good, and I have no idea how you were lucky enough to get passed two of them in a row. Here are some resources to help you evaluate cards in this set:

I already had one and do not like multiples of effects like that, there value diminishes greatly in multiples, as it requires some setting up and stopping watching when people do something different to what you would do is stupid, its more a reason to watch. Plus teller of tales is an outright bomb also, and funnily enough on that reddit link you provided teller of tales ranked above blind with anger maybe you should read it yourself.

Also I don't need help with kami block drafting, I was drafting when it was out and have ptq top 8's in the format to my name.

Just saying: Teller of Tales is often better than the 2nd Blind with Anger.

Teller of Tales is a good card, but you were offered a bomb which would allow you to stay in one color. That early in the draft, I think it is worthwhile to keep your options open when given the choice between two cards of a similar power level. By not branching into blue, you leave yourself open to going into any other color later. Also, I don't think that Blind with Anger gets worse in multiples, because at a certain point people just can't play around it (and 4 mana is actually not backbreaking to hold up).

Finally, the Reddit link I provided doesn't rank the cards at all, so I have no idea why you think Teller of Tales is rated higher than Blind with Anger. The numbers might as well be bullet points; was the author also ranking Japanese Mythology over Creature types? Seems like you quickly glanced over the page without reading it yourself.

I think the pick was 4th pick, a fourth teller is as much a sign as blind. It gets worse in multiple's and the problem is when read, its hard to develop your board and leave 4 mana up whilst the other person can develop with no such worry.

I really like blue red, in KKK and its an archetype I like to draft, so this was a fairly easy pick for me. It might be debatable but it was a far cry from so bad, I just stopped watching like you made out.

Also that reddit article is pretty bad. Dampen is largely a UW deck, it was still draftable in KKB, in fact it was the archtype I won the most with in that format. Splashing is awful, in kamiblock outside of green and the article seemed to advocate going three colours in a format where there is not the mana fixing to do so.
