Top Ten Minecraft Blocks


The Top Ten

1 Diamond Block

FACE. PALM. If you think this is a good block for building houses, then you must re-evaluate your live choices. It bloody looks like crap.

Well my favorite color is blue and it looks so cool

Worth the moste probably - TheCarNerd

Soul sand

2 Command Block

When this was added it completely changed the game. So many possibilities we're opened up for map making. Just look at the stuff possible in 1.8, like captive Minecraft or infinity dungeon!

These blocks are the most powerful. Seriously. They are as strong as bedrock and can do anything, like allow you to be able to kill the wither one hit with your fist. I have no idea why anyone thinks that though other blocks are stronger/better.

Who says diamond block when you spend 9 diamonds to get one block that some troll breaks with -=AN IRON=- pickaxe. When of course with the command block you just type '/clear @p', add a pressure plate above it, and then get another that says '/set gamemode 2 @p' right next to the other and BOOM! The troll can't break your diamond block.

The every thing block
The only reason this is not first is because some people don't know what it is

4 Obsidian

This is my favourite block of all time, it's much stronger than a diamond block and can be made into a nether portal. Jack

Can help craft awesome stuff like an enchantment table and nether portal, and is so blast resistant.

You can create the nether portal with it... - Minecraftcrazy530

It's the strongest block besides bedrock. it's used for nether portals which allows you to get glowstone and it doesn't look to weird

The most important block in Minecraft

It's makes armor weapons and fishing rods and other things stronger

6 Iron Block

I love iron and always try to find some as it is quite common in caves even when you step in it you find it

They look nice for modern theme, especially labs, walls and vaults. My vault is made out of iron. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Can help in spawning iron golem

I love iron since how easy it is to find and easy to mine and how good it is

7 Wood

Without it minecraft wouldn't exist. Only if you are playing survival though.

Without wood Minecraft is totally ruined you can't mine and craft

What can you do without wood? Useless things if you don't have wood and you can do wood!

The best block for building various structurs, whenever style or theme. Medieval, modern, or futuristic, wood always have uses! - MChkflaguard_Yt

8 Gold Block

Watch Skydoesminecraft, it's his favorite block. Spoil alert he calls it BUTTER!

Gold pickaxe breaking more faster than diamond but have durability lower than diamond

One of the worst blocks for building ever. Just plain ugly! - MChkflaguard_Yt

10 Dragon Egg

This is THE rarest block ever! Literally, it is the only block in vanilla Minecraft that there can only be one of legitimately, no matter how far you travel!

It's awesome I collect them all day everyday u just need a lever and sticky piston once u defeat the endear dragon

Command Blocks are better they can not be obtained in survival where dragon eggs can

Useless. Utterly useless. Other than a good small statue it has no use whatever. - MChkflaguard_Yt

The Contenders

11 Wooden Planks

Great for building a structure for your first night. Plus easy to craft

Couldn't get by without it. - brandololz

12 Dirt

People think dirt is bad for houses cause of the TEXTURE. - TeamRocket747

I would never get tired staring at dirt all day.

It makes most the world its an awesome block

Dirt blocks are epic

13 Emerald Block

Unlike other blocks which usually, when you find one, you find a lot of them, emerald only occurs by itself on most occasions therefore it is by far the rarest.

Looks horrible, hardly any uses for building - MChkflaguard_Yt

Good for villagers because they like emeralds. But I don't know why...

14 Bedrock

I like bedrock because I turn myself in creative and turn my brother into survival and trap him in it

Without this block when your mining in a hole and you mine 1 stone and you just fall in the void.

You can trap people in command block they can not be broken

You can only break it in creative
