Block Idea: Sculked Grimstone Bricks (Placeholder name):Just Grimstone Bricks, but corrupted by the mysterious Sculk... Cool, don't you think??The models and the textures were made with the help of Blockbench, Hope you like it!! :)#Blockbench

Sculk vein is one of the five sculk-type blocks generated in deep dark caves. It is not a complete block similar to the glowing lichen added in Caves and Cliffs Part 1.

Players can attach sculk veins to the side of blocks. Sculk veins can be automatically farmed using sculk catalyst. The purpose of this block has not been revealed yet.

Players will come across sculk blocks in deep dark caves. It can also be generated using sculk catalyst. To obtain sculk blocks, players will need Silk Touch enchantment. Breaking it with a regular pickaxe will drop experience points.

Players can use sculk blocks as XP storage banks. Players can quickly get tons of sculk blocks using mob farms and sculk catalysts.

Sculk sensor has the potential to change Minecraft's Redstone community. It can detect vibrations and create Redstone signals in response. With sculk sensors, players will be able to make wireless contraptions.

Sculk catalyst

Here is a Sneak Peak at a NEW BLOCK that grows in the Deep Dark. This block is called the "Sculk Catalyst" and if you kill a mob near it, it'll spread depending on how much xp that mob dropped.

Sculk catalyst will probably be the most useful sculk type block in Minecraft 1.19 update. This block has the ability to create other kinds of sculk blocks. When a mob dies near a sculk catalyst, it makes sculk, sculk vein, and sculk sensors.

Sculk shrieker


Minecraft blocks are unheard of for being scary, but the upcoming sculk shrieker will creep players out. Sculk shrieker has a creepy bone-like texture and causes a loud shriek sound when activated.

Sculk shriekers can be activated using sculk sensor. When activated too many times, sculk shrieker will summon the terrifying warden. Players will find this block in ancient cities coming in the 1.19 update.
