One for the brooding necromancers, this Medieval tower by Youtuber “MythicalSausage” uses Warped stone and Blackstone to create a look that oozes with evil. You can almost hear the witches cackling from here. If you need somewhere to sleep whilst you cook up horrible schemes for the other players on your server, this is the build for you. Surround it with some goats to really sell the devilish theme.

Avengers tower built in minecraft

Avengers tower

Okay, I couldn’t resist. I had to squeeze some Marvel in somewhere, and there’s nothing more iconic than Avengers Tower. If this feels like too much to take on, Youtuber “TSMC - Minecraft” has created a tutorial that will walk you through every step, leaving you with a stunning rendition of Tony Stark’s tower. Whether you want to reenact your favourite scenes, or you just want to lounge around in some awesome Marvel skins, this is the perfect build for any MCU fan. It’s Avengers Tower. Do we really need to convince you more?

Of course, it technically isn't Avengers Tower anymore in the MCU. Since Spider-Man Homecoming, we've known that Avengers Tower was sold when Tony moved the team to the facility in upstate New York. The big question: who bought Avengers Tower in the MCU? Is it the Fantastic Four? I doubt it. Is it something to do with the big new baddie introduced in the Hawkeye series? That would certainly be cool, but the current owner of Avengers Tower remains to be seen for now. Regardless, why not spend some time building all of your wonderful theories? You could have hundreds of Stark Tower variants before the truth is revealed.
