The most important block in Minecraft

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

Iron is strong and shiny
It shines better than diamond

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

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

10 Dragon Egg

Such a cool block

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

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

12 Dirt

Is so rare

Dirt blox are kinda amazijng

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

I would never get tired staring at dirt all day.

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 cool

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

18 Glazed Terracotta


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

"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

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 Monster Spawners
25 Cobblestone

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

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 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 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.

29 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

30 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.

36 Dead Bush

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

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

41 Sugarcane

42 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

43 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
