    Dont know why this hasn't gotten more attention, I was actually just looking to suggest it myself, but I saw you beat me to it. 

     

    Would be nice to have the mud blocks 15 pixels high, similar to the path blocks and farmland, creating a bit more depth to the game. I dont think mud should look like dirt, though. I think mud should look a bit wet, so a darker color than dirt. Would make a good block for mapmakers too!

    Would be nice if mud drops mud balls when harvested with the hand, whereas silk touch tools give the block itself. Mud balls/ balls of mud would be throwable and do 0,5 hearts of damage :P

     

    Also check the mud balls in Biomes O Plenty: https://lifeinthewoods-minecraft.wikia.com/wiki/Mud

    Mud should slow you down, but I don't think you should sink in it like the picture.

    If mud is dirt that is touching water, would it be able to be tilled into farmland?  Since there is usually water touching dirt in a field for hydration purposes.

    Would grass also turn into mud, or would the fact of grass growing on it keep it more solid?

    You should only sink in it (slowly) if it is deeper than 1 block.

    Great Idea, I think it should be possible to collect it using a bucket (like lava). By putting a mud bucket into a furnace, 4 dirt blocks should be created... not very usefull, I know, but realistic

    Dried mudbricks would be nice too.

    I don't think it should be a block. I think it should be a liquid

    Maybe, when you break the mud block it should place water where the block was (because the mud holds water). That  might also make it easier to get water.

    It sounds interesting with liquid mud, but I'm not sure which I prefer.

    Maybe bubble columns could pass through it but still be a solid block, like many when bubble columns pass through you begin to either sink or not have the slowdown effect that normally would effect you depending on the direction

    I'd love it to be flowing mud. Then make it possible for dirt generators when mud flows onto lava, similar to a cobblestone generator. (For those who like Terraforming in survival)

    I dont like having mud around lakes all the time, instead maybe when it rains the ground turns to mud?

    There should be an odd squelching noise when trodding on or placing/breaking mud.

    I think if mud is added it should be a liquid like water or lava. It can be scooped up in to a bucket like in minecraft earth. When placed it will behave just like water or lava. The player cant swim in it. When you jump in the mud you will sink slowly in not instantly like with water and lava. Once in mud you will move slowly as if you were walking on soul sand whilst in water(and yes I know you cant).
    Now for the 'spawn' mechanics. You can occasionally find mud in a swamp. To make it a farmable resource you can place a source block of water on top of a block of dirt or course dirt. Say in 5 to 10 mins the block will then convert to mud. This mechanic should also occur when it rains so afterwards you can find small pockets of mud. Mud can also spread in water but it can also be nullified by it. If theres 10 or more water sources connected to make a river or a lake then mud wont take over. When dried out mud will become a dried mud block. This can be used as a building block and can be used to upgrade dirt huts. A single source block can dry out in 2 to 3 mins in the sun. Quicker in the desert or nether.
    Thats been my idea to this suggestion.

    I would like this block to be in the game and it would be a great block to spawn in the swamp biomes and if you completely sink then you suffocate.
