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.

You can make great and much Things with ir

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

You can make an ender chest

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

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

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

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!

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

9 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

Such a cool block

The Contenders

11 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

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

12 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...

13 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 blox are kinda amazijng

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

Without bed rock we would fall into the VOIDD!

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

So many Stampy fanboys here. I don't know why. The only use for this is redstone. - MChkflaguard_Yt

18 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. - MChkflaguard_Yt

For what?


19 Glazed Terracotta
20 Pressure Plate

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


Me neither

21 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

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.

22 Redstone Block

I just like redstone I'm FED X gaming!

It just looks cool!?!?

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 Cobblestone

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.

I bet you CAN'T build something medieval without this - MChkflaguard_Yt

25 Monster Spawners
26 Coal Ore

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!

27 Brewing Stand
28 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! - MChkflaguard_Yt

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

The best looking block

29 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

30 Jungle Wood

Good for decoration, but not much else.

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

Need I say more?

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

34 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

YAY! DEAD BUSH! My favorite block! :D - Emberflight_of_StormClan

36 Eyes Of Ender

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

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

37 Lava
38 Sugarcane

My Favourite block (after lava)

39 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

40 Endstone

Endstone's awesome!

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

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

41 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
