Sculk is a set of organisms that appear exclusively in the Deep Dark. It was revealed last year during the Minecraft Live 2020 event. This material will cover the majority of the zone and is one of the main features of the Wild Update. Initially, sculk and its variants were going to be added in 1.18, however, after Mojang decides to expand the Deep Dark, it is delayed to 1.19 instead. In this article, we are going to list out all Sculk blocks in Minecraft the Wild Update.

The Deep Dark will be much bigger than expected.

1 - Sculk Block

This is a block that drops experience when broken without Silk Touch. It generates naturally in the environment and from mob corpses around sculk catalyst. The Sculk blocks have animated textures and can be used in redstone.

2 - Sculk Catalyst

Another sculk blocks that are naturally generated in the Deep Dark. Sculk catalysts are made of sculk and a bone-like material. It will spread sculk blocks to wherever a nearby mob dies. The amount of sculk spread is based on the amount of experience dropped by the mob.

It also emits light and soul particles after a mob dies and grows sculk. Similar to the Sculk block, you need silk touch tools to harvest this. Overall, this block hints at the insidious nature of the sculk. They are likely to be some type of mold that infects dead organisms to create more of itself.

3 - Sculk Sensor

The sculk sensor is a block that detects vibrations and communicates them with certain Sculk components, or transforms them to Redstone signals. This might significantly change how redstone contraptions work in the game. It will be possible to trick the sculk sensor by sneaking... but it still activates if something steps on it.

Sculk sensors can detect vibrations in a 9 block radius around it. Currently, sculk sensors can currently be obtained only from the creative inventory‌ or commands.

4 - Sculk Shrieker

The sculk shrieker has the ability to 'shriek', which generates ring-like/sonic particles and gives the player the "darkness" effect. If activated too many times, a warden will spawn and attack the player. This hints at the nature of the Warden - it might be a creature infested by the Sculk.

While under the darkness effect, the player's vision will be affected. They will see a pulsating dark effect. Try to maintain a good distance from this block when exploring.

5 - Sculk Vein

This is a decorative block that generates in a layer on top of blocks, similar to snow. It can be placed in all directions, like glow lichen.

6 - Sculk Jaw

This is a beta block that generates in the Deep Dark biome. It is supposed to be a trap block that deals damage to the player. The sculk jaw has a different top texture than the Sculk Block and Sculk Catalyst. According to the developer, this block is unlikely to make it to the final release.
