It's a small change, but this seems more natural:
coords = Table[{
x = Random[];
y = Random[]; z = Random[]; GrayLevel[z], Polygon[{{x, y,
z}, {x + .2, y, z}, {x + .1, y + .2, z}}]}, {i, 1, 10}];
Show[Graphics3D[coords], Lighting -> False, PlotRange -> {{0, 1.2}, {
0, 1.2}, {0, 1}}];
or
pt := Random[] & /@ Range[3];
coords = Table[{{x, y, z} = pt;
GrayLevel[z],
Polygon[{{x, y, z}, {x + .2, y, z}, {x + .1, y + .2, z}}]}, {i, 1,
10}];
Show[Graphics3D[coords], Lighting -> False, PlotRange -> {{0, 1.2}, {0,
1.2}, {0, 1}}];
or better yet:
pt := Random[] & /@ Range[3];
dx = {1, 0, 0}; dy = {0, 1, 0};
triangle = {GrayLevel@Last@#, Polygon[{#, # + 0.2dx, # + 0.1dx +
0.2dy}]} &;
Show[Graphics3D[Table[triangle@pt, {i, 1, 10}]], Lighting ->
False, PlotRange -> {{0, 1.2}, {0, 1.2}, {0, 1}}];
In the original version, you're creating a matrix with 5 columns, just
to throw away the first three columns. You don't have to create those
columns in the first place.

Try this. The Table[] creates ten triangles at random heights z (and the
postfix [[{4,5}]] discards the x,y, and z values) that are drawn using
Polygon[]. Each triangle is preceded by a specification of graylevel.
Then Show[Graphics3D[ ]] shows them all in a 1x1x1 box.
coords = Table[{x = Random[], y = Random[], z = Random[], GrayLevel[z],
Polygon[{{x, y, z}, {x + .2, y, z}, {x + .1, y + .2, z}}]}[[{4,
5}]], {i, 1, 10}];
Show[Graphics3D[coords], Lighting -> False,
PlotRange -> {{0, 1.2}, {0, 1.2}, {0, 1}}];
