Top Ten Minecraft Blocks


The Top Ten

1 Command Block

Only bad thing is once when I accidentally put kill on repeat made my world unplayable I had to delete it witch sucked - trains45

Best block ever

Do this command for you to hate diamonds /summon item: diamond @e repeat. Then you will really love diamonds after that

god block

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

Nah,wood and grass are more important

*gags* no, the diamond block is a waste of diamonds. People who build houses out of diamond, gold, emerald and iron blocks are retarded.

Are you serious DIAMOND BLOCK... such a waste of diamonds - jadedR6


Just die please haha no don't actually I love you and you are special

TNT is SO fun to TROLL noobs with - jadedR6

I love blowing everything up


4 Obsidian

This could put me on hell without intermissions. - RW700


Is super strong other then bedrock

Obsidian is cool because it's hard to get.

5 Enchanting Table

I really really love enchanting - TheCarNerd

The most important block in Minecraft

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


6 Iron Block

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

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

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

Can help in spawning iron golem

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!

It may be common, but it has to be the most useful block in Minecraft

8 Gold Block

Guys I can't stop pooing help. AH - jadedR6

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

9 Beacons

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 - Ar0nT0pTeNz05

Just trying to get one. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

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

Minecraft Cay

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


The Contenders

11 Dirt

It's dirt


Dirt can take like infinite hits from a dimoad sword in CREATIVE MODE. (No joke, it actually can). - GamerXS

Dirt is so amazing

Is so rare

12 Wooden Planks

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

Easy to get good to build with - TheCarNerd

Couldn't get by without it. - brandololz

The best building block ever!

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...

Rarest block in Minecraft

14 Bedrock

It is so strong

Bedrock make pp hard

it cool

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

15 Anvil 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.

I think you've got the wrong picture there. - GamerXS

Did it automatically add that picture? That's hilarious

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

I like naming things with the anvil - TheCarNerd

16 Nether Brick

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

But you can troll incredible

17 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

18 Glazed Terracotta


It’s pretty and a good way to decorate

19 Hardened Clay

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

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

For what?


20 Crafting Table

This one cool block - trains45

"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

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.

21 Pressure Plate

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


Me neither

22 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 - trains45

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

I've got like 40 redstone blocks, problem is, I suck at redstone. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

I just like redstone I'm FED X gaming!

23 Vines

Sweet blocks! They can be used as ladders if you want a natural-looking house. Plus skeletons and other mobs can't see through them.

24 Monster Spawners

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

25 Cobblestone

Probably the most common and useful building block out there

Cobblestone is cheap, renewable, useful, blast resistant, flame resistant, and pretty-able all at the same time! What's not to love?

Great for building homes and even entire villages also makes pretty durable tools!

Good for building and crafting.

26 Quartz

Clean block of Quartz is the best ( after sea lanterns and diamonds)

The best looking block

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

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.

27 Coal Ore

Coal is handy better than using wood from trees or wool - trains45

Very important block! Without it you could not smelt ores with the furnace! that means no gold, iron, glass, brick, stone, and many more imporant blocks!

28 Brewing Stand
29 Jungle Wood

Really cool for treetop world builds. And don't forget about beach and vacation themes too. I built palmtrees with these. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Good for decoration, but not much else.

30 Melon

Need I say more?

Melons Melons Melons! I would build a castle out of them!

Ugh, melon is truly the best and most majestic thing in the blockiverse

31 Slime

Awesome block! You can make damn trampolines!

I agree this block is sick

Jump jump jump!
Also very useful when it comes to cannons

32 Lava
33 Wool


34 Birch Planks
35 Ocelots Ocelots The ocelot, also known as the dwarf leopard, is a wild cat distributed extensively within South America including the islands of Trinidad and Margarita, Central America, and Mexico. It has been reported as far north as Texas.

That's an odd shaped block... - Emberflight_of_StormClan

They arents mobs, but they are adorable!


36 Lapis


37 Dead Bush

It is good for desolation themed builds! Also makes deserts look better and is a good thing for dead plants. - MChkflaguard_Yt

You can use it for everything! - ICanSeeYou

I love dead bushes even though everyone dosnt think so

What?! No it's the most useless thing in Minecraft only for decoration and noobs

38 Air

What would the world look like without air?


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

39 Cactus

Nubcake no hugs - Jragon

Best block in minecraft great 4 hugs

Looks good when you are decorating

40 Concrete
41 Purpur Block
42 Grass Block


43 Eyes Of Ender

Without these we won't be able to go to the end and finish the game and see the credits...

! Eyes of ender aren't even blocks..

You wouldn't be able to complete the game, without these!

Useless you can't build stuff with it
But good for mysterious pearls in adventure maps... - MChkflaguard_Yt

44 Sugarcane

My Favourite block (after lava)

45 Mycelium

Excellent for growing mushrooms and if you make a chamber out of mushroom in survival mode, you might be lucky enough to get some Mooshrooms spawning

46 Endstone

Ummm I guess it's cool for blast testers, but not much else. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Endstone's awesome!

I, enderbrine, love it! So beautiful, I wanna eat it because it looks like parmesan chees
