My proposal for the skulk is for it to grow "infecting" the surrounding blocks, this process would be similar to how grass grows on dirt, and would only be surface level. As well as having a way to cure it so that the players creations don't get destroyed. This would be interesting since effectively an entire landscape could become like a hostile mob. I will list potential blocks that could stem from this
Skulk source: A skulk source would be the center of the skulk, when placed it would start growing skulk around it, and after a while it could grow blocks around it to protect itself, destroying this block could cure the skulk growth, as well as give the player an item to use.
Skulk arms: This is a bit outlandish, but it could attack, things near it when something makes sound. Kind of like a weaker warden. Another interesting idea would be that a warden could spawn from this block.
Another idea would be that if the player mines the skulk source with silk touch they could obtain the block. A way this could be used is that the player could craft the skulk source with something else to essentially "tame" it. This could be used as a way to defend the players home.
