Minecraft has a lot of blocks, but what if they had more? Why do we need them? Please don't just add lists of things - these will be marked as spam and removed! Also, no furniture, guns, or vertical/"sideways"/"upright"/"standing" slabs (yes, we see you).


What is the purpose of Deepslate?

    Deepslate will make more sense in 1.18, when they'll add the warden, aquifers, sculk sensors, y0 to y-64 caves, etc. It provides a block that looks similar to bedrock in some ways, but is also mine-able so players can explore. I THINK Mojang also plans a risk/reward feature, where since caves with deepslate would be more dangerous, they'd be more likely to have diamonds. Not sure about that last part though.
