Top Ten Minecraft Blocks

The Top Ten

1 Command Block

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.

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.

Pretty epic the things you can do with just one block. The only problem is that it requires creative, but you can make flying pyramids, arrays of command blocks that can make a RC helicopter, an interactive teleporter, the possibilities are limitless!

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!

2 Diamond Block

The diamond block is great for if u have diamonds that take too much space in a chest. I would say only use it for the necessary items and then keep a few. Definitely not for building with

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.

I built my house out of diamond. My sister's is out of emeralds. My friend's older bro's house is gold. My friend's little bro's house is out of quartz.

Diamond houses look like poop. An assortment of materials must be used in order to make a good minecraft house

Just voted cause this reminds me of Dan. That's it (I don't really play Minecraft, sorry XP but I love Dan! )


I love blowing stuff up especially in creative mode when I need to get rid of something.

I love blowing up stuff with the TNT especially when I'm trolling my little brother

I love TNT because I love exploding everything and even blow my sister's house.

Gotta say Tnt, the only one that actually makes Minecraft with villages fun

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.

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

Is strong even a diamond pickaxe is not really effective

5 Enchanting Table

I have three. Always kept separately and at least one in secret at all times, in case my siblings try to destroy my empire.

If we did not have enchanted armor and things like that, we would not be protected enough

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

The most important block in Minecraft

6 Beacons

OMG. Seriously?
Beacons are the worst items in existence. There's no such thing as a good beacon, because its costs so much that you could never get a fully-charged beacon in survival.
First, you need three diamonds to get the obsidian it needed (only a diamond pickaxe can break obsidian), and enough luck to find a Nether fortress thus kill enough wither skeletons to get three wither skulls. Then you need to risk your life more than ten times to kill the Wither and get the Nether star. You'll need at least 81 iron ingots (iron's the cheapest for the build-up of a beacon) to create a build-up stand for the beacon, and you'll need 3867 iron ingots to create fully-charged beacon. Are you really willing to risk so much iron (sixty and a half stacks) just t create ONE beacon? Furthermore, the beacon's ranged. So if you leave its radius, all your sixty stacks of iron's going to serve no use. Unless you're in creative and making some decor, beacons are almost as useless as rotten flesh ...more

In survival:

1. Nether Portal
2. Nether Fortress
3. Get 3 Skulls from Wither skeletons
4. Get Soul sand
5. Summon the Wither
6. Defeat it and get the nether star

I love Playing with beacons on creative mode especially how you can make a different cole red beacon!
Thank you for making them!

It's a good light and it can help you build faster (haste).

7 Iron Block

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

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


Just a way of storage, or in other cases like for beacons or just a show of wealth

Iron is strong and shiny
It shines better than diamond
No one understands me...

8 Wood

Honestly, wood is the MOST essential block in minecraft, you use it for many simple things like creating a crafting bench, making planks, and building your house. You also use it for things like making charcoal, making your own trees, and of course decoration. Hands down my FAVOURITE block.

How do you beat Minecraft without wood? It should be number 1 because you can beat Minecraft without command blocks, you done need diamonds to win and you certantly don’t need tnt to win. 5 and 6 are blocks to that you need

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

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

9 Gold Block

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

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

The squid stole skydoesminecraft block of... BUTTER! It's like real liife

Some people call gold butter!

10 Dragon Egg

A unique trophy included in the game after defeating the "final boss" the ender dragon. I personally like to use them as lamp foundations, wish they were included in the creative inventory though instead of having to travel to the end to retrieve it every time you create a new world.

I know how to make more than one dragon egg per world. step 1: go to the end. step 2: kill the ender dragon. step 3: go into creative mode and go to the portal that leads to the overworld but DON'T go in it. step 4: use the "Copy Touch" ability on the dragon egg (click the egg with the mouse wheel and make sure you have space in your inventory) then the egg will be in your inventory. step 5: create as many ender dragon eggs as you want!

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!

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

The Newcomers

? Hay Bale

It's the best block ever because it's so useful and it's pretty pleasing to look at. It can be used for food and it reduces damage.

The Contenders

11 Cake

I built a whole farm just to make cake and I'm making a pillow factory to and I'm able to make like over 16 cakes this has awesomeness written all over it!

Cooked chicken and cookies are my favorite food in Minecraft + also steak and cake lol!

M cake is the best food in Minecraft

No its not a lie cake is awesome

12 Dirt

Dirt is the greatest block in Minecraft. It supports most forms of life, wood, grass, trees, animals, mycelium, etc. If dirt did not exist, searching for food would be much harder, and the player would be nearly unable to move on from basic survival.

It may sound noobish, but dirt is a realistic and important block in its own way. Without dirt, what would the ground be made out of? Stone? That wouldn't look right. Would flowers grow? Nooo. No grass, thereby no animals cause animals need grass. Sheep's wool would never grow back, cause there teeth would break if they tried to munch stone. Therefore, dirt is important in its own way.


What do you want the natrual floor make out of? None other than dirt, stone floors look like crap.

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

13 Crafting Table

Without crafting tables, you would just aimlessly walk about, not collecting anything because you wouldn't have a pick axe.Therefore all you would do go random places, just getting gravel, sand, and dirt.

If we did not have a crafting table, We would not get pickaxes, hoes, and a crafting table!

"Also one of the main blocks of minecraft with out it Minecraft would be only Mine"

This is the centre of Minecraft... You can't do anything without it

14 Wooden Planks

A really good building material, if you think diamond houses are awesome, you probably got an F in arts.

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

Easy to get good to build with

The best building block ever!

15 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.

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

Looks horrible, hardly any uses for building

Rarest in the game and best by far

16 Bedrock

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

Without bed rock we would fall into the VOIDD!

17 Anvil Anvil are a Canadian heavy metal band from Toronto, Ontario, formed in 1978. The band consists of Steve "Lips" Kudlow, Robb Reiner and Chris Robertson.

Its used for traps and naming and enchanting armor and tools with books

Did it automatically add that picture? That's hilarious

I think you've got the wrong picture there.

Me too! You can name anything with it! BOOM!

18 Nether Brick

Has the most different variations in shape of any block, being able to create full blocks, stairs, slabs, walls, and fences. Unfortunately it doesn't have a fence gate. Not to mention red nether bricks as well.

A wonderful "building material": meaning you can make slabs and stairs out of this great material, too!

19 Air

THE most important block in Minecraft. Without it, you would instantly suffocate when generating a world.

What would the world look like without air?



20 Quartz

It's very beautiful and refined. It really helps when making smooth builds like eyes or a checkered pattern.

Much more simple then wool, yet much more beautiful.

Classy. Base block for modern builds, very classy, refined, plain (wool has too much pixels) and useful. Anything modern? Quartz!

Quartz is my favourite block in the game. I love the beautiful marble-like texture of it.

Yeah quartz looks so classy and smooth, definitely the best white block

21 Glazed Terracotta

It’s pretty and a good way to decorate

awesome for decoration , it pops almost as much as my lip gloss

22 Hardened Clay

Great Building block, It is so smooth and comes in a variety of colors, goes great with almost any build!

Especially with cyan stained clay. It is so great for modern themes.

23 Redstone Block

This handy for some things I used it before to active a light with a sticky piston, with a daylight senior to active lights at night when the daylight senior deactivated sticky piston at night, this was before I knew how to set a daylight senior to sence darkness and send a redstone signal at night

The most useful block in minecraft you can make t flip flops

It just looks cool!?!?

I just like redstone I'm FED X gaming!

24 Pressure Plate

I don't think this should be on the top ten

My uncle is going to beat me

25 Monster Spawners

Trolling people and destroying their bases

I like to make traps, and they can spawn in an infinite amount ov stuff. pigs will take over!
