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

I also think it's the best block in the game, but sadly I play on PS4

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

Fun block, but I can only use it on my java edition minecraft, if ps4 gets bedrock then I could use it on my ps4 yoo

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

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

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


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

I love blowing up stuff laugh out loud

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

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.

You can create the nether portal with it...

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.

I really really love enchanting

The most important block in Minecraft

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

6 Iron Block

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

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

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

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

7 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

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

8 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

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

Minecraft Cay

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

9 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!

It not worth to much

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.

Kept as a trophy. Wish it were functional, though. I could use a pet ender dragon.

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

The Contenders

11 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.


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

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

I would never get tired staring at dirt all day.

12 Wooden Planks

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

Easy to get good to build with

Couldn't get by without it.

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

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

Rarest block in Minecraft

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

15 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 like naming things with the anvil

I think you've got the wrong picture there.

16 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!

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 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.

For what?


19 Glazed Terracotta


It’s pretty and a good way to decorate

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.

This one cool block

21 Pressure Plate

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

My uncle is going to beat me


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

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

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

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

Trolling people and destroying their bases

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 Coal Ore

Coal is handy better than using wood from trees or wool

Super useful for smelting and lightning

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

I know how to make all potions

I don’t know how to brew potions

28 Quartz

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

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!

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

29 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.

30 Melon

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

Need I say more?

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

31 Lava

Great for protecting my base

32 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

33 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?



34 Wool


35 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...

They arents mobs, but they are adorable!


36 Concrete
37 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!

Very useful and fun

38 Sugarcane

My Favourite block (after lava)

39 Birch Planks
40 Lapis


41 Cactus

Best block in minecraft great 4 hugs

Looks good when you are decorating

Nubcake no hugs

42 Purpur Block
43 Corral (1.14)

They were implemented in 1.13

44 Grass Block

The minecraft block


45 Dead Bush

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

You can use it for everything!

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

46 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

47 Endstone

Endstone's awesome!

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

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

48 Yellow Wool
49 Prismarine Brick

The most pristine looking block.

50 Coal

Super useful smelting and lighting
