    We really do need Potions of Decay to be craftable some way or another. The bonemeal effect on nether wart is also quite useful. I think it would be nice to be able to use wither bones for some kind of special tool or weapon as well.

    I think this is good. At the moment killing withers involves a ton of grinding. Giving the player a reward for killing each wither skele would make that grinding process a little more pleasant.

    I think maybe it should be considered that combining 9 wither bones makes a wither skull that way you get a feeling of progress as you grind for skulls. Each bone puts you one bit closer to the wither boss. As it is now you can kill 100 wither skeletons and get nothing useful, which really puts me off the idea. I only fight the wither boss in modded.

    I think the Wither Dust should work like Bonemeal but only for the trees in the Nether. If you use the Wither Dust in the Overworld on saplings or grass, the saplings would turn into dead bushes, Grass Blocks would turn into Dirt, Tallgrass simply dies (disappears) and around the block around which you have placed the Wither Dust, would be a short Wither effect.

    I love the creativity here! Maybe withered bones could be used to craft withered bone blocks, kind of like normal bones?

    I think a better name is charred bones. Also maybe the bones could be used for a better bow

    I would like to have black bone blocks to build with

    It can also be used as a wool dye which can be used in tandem with the new wood types as a nether spawn replacement for beds and the faded black texture for wool/concrete/terra-cotta would be excellent

    @UnduGT I believe that idea would be amazing! My only thought about it, though, is through using it underwater will yield a similar result. Instead of a withering effect, however it would kill all plant life(sea grass and kelp) in a 5 by 5 area(could be circular). I feel that it would be very useful when taking out massive areas of sea grass you don't need. What do you think?

    Maybe the blocks could be used to summon the wither, as a replacement of soul sand.

    I feel like they should be called Withered Bones instead cause the bones aren't really from the Wither

    You could make wither bone meal from it for Netherplants,like the new trees or netherwarts

    The withered bonemeal variant could be used on the Warped and Crimson Nylium blocks to farm the fungus and roots.

    If they do add these, they should definitely add wither bone blocks. It would be very useful for building, as a smooth, but still textured black block.
    I like how you incorporated them into the creation of decay potions, but I don't think you need the wither dust. The wither bones can do what the wither dust would've done

    I like the idea but don't make the bonemeal from the wither bone work with the other plants because if you use it on the other it should kill it in stead of helping it.

    I like most of these ideas being listed. However, because the Wither is associated with a poisonous effect, I think wither bonemeal should have the opposite effect on plants. Instead of growing more plants, it clears them away, which could be useful for getting rid of unwanted grass and flowers while building. Furthermore, "plants" like the ones growing on nylium could be immune to this effect.

    And as far as a "wither block as storage", how about a Wither bone block for some artistic uses too?

    But the soul sand makes sense in summoning a Wither

    @Blaze Dracon In what way does it make sense?

    The wither dust should be the only way to grow warped and crimson trees.
