This is Grell's most dangerous experiment yet, so he's relying on the wisdom of the ancient Byzantine engineers.

Card of the Day - Small Mammal
A combination of Elvish Visionary, Ironshell Beetle, and Monk Realist.
The random standard thing went pretty well. Sergei showed up and used one of Benny's decks (Swath/Grapeshot combo) and Frank played a Mind over Matter/Arcanis/Dream Halls combo deck. Dream Halls might or might not be banned. Those of us with more than one deck switched them out, although I mainly stuck with red/white aggro and Benny usually went back a white weenie deck with Armageddon. The decklists may or may not show up at some point. I'm not gonna write a whole lot about it now as I have an AP test or two to study for and what with playing Magic all yesterday my time is sorta precious.
EDIT: We redistributed blocks and core sets using a random number-generating program. Here are the new blocks and core sets we've been assigned (as far as I remember): Grell - Time Spiral, Urza Block, and Ninth Draco - Shards, Masques, and Tenth Benny - Lorwyn, Tempest, and Seventh Frank - Shadowmoor, Invasion, and Eighth Sergei - Kamigawa, Odyssey, and Sixth
Red/Green aggro is looking pretty good for me and I'm itching to play a Wild Pair deck. It's all fairly exciting.
