Exploring Our First Mangrove Swamp! ▫ Minecraft 1.19 Survival Guide (Tutorial Lets Play) [S2 E105]

The Minecraft Survival Guide Season 2 continues, and today is our first episode in Minecraft 1.19: The Wild Update!
In this tutorial, we search our world for a Mangrove Swamp, a new biome added in 1.19. This biome is home to mangrove trees, with their own wood, root blocks, new leaves, and unique sapling mechanics! We explore how to farm mangrove propagules and mangrove trees renewably, then move on to look at Mud and Muddy Mangrove Roots – which can also be farmed renewably or grown organically!
Finally we break down Mangrove wood into all its variant blocks including stairs, slabs, doors, trapdoors, signs, and even mangrove boats!
Future episodes will look at other features added to compliment Mangrove Swamp biomes, like frogs and chest boats. We’ll visit the Deep Dark to explore Sculk Blocks, The Warden, and hopefully Ancient Cities tomorrow!

  1. The wood works like other wood types. The mud makes bricks. But what is the purpose of the roots? I think they should give it better purpose than just rooted mud.
    Something I wish Mojang would add is making baskets 🧺.

  2. stipped mangrove looks like those rolls(?) of meat
    the 6 sided stripped mangrove looks kinda like blocks of meat or ham. actually, the jungle version looks more like ham, the mangrove is just the redder, more raw version.
    speaking of which, spruce and dark oak could be cooked versions

  3. Actually irritated that the mangrove roots are for some reason way easier to mine on Java than on Bedrock. They take so long to mine on Bedrock it's like deepslate.

  4. I for one really love the you can’t fully automate the production of mud blocks and the derivatives. In the reveal during Minecraft Live, Agnes (I think) mentioned their intent to incorporate aesthetics from different parts of the real world into Minecraft. In real life, the people who use mud bricks traditionally definitely didn’t have machines to produce them, so they crafted the bricks, and in turn their buildings, by hand. I like the idea of Mojang having us learn about world traditions and cultures through the enjoyment and experiences of Minecraft, and it’s truly incredible they made a game where this can happen.

  5. It's nice that all of this stuff can be farmed, but I definitely see it being a grind. To farm mud you need a piglin gravel farm to make coarse dirt and thus get renewable dirt using a hoe . . . and the trees are going to be a real pain to auto farm too. I wonder how long it's going to take for somebody to come up with good systems for both of these tasks?

  6. Two things you missed…being able to waterlog the mangrove roots (though apparently you can do this to all leaf blocks now?), and more importantly, being able to convert mud blocks into clay using dripstone, using a similar setup to the lava generation…

  7. Ooh, flipping the mangrove bark 90 degrees as either a log or wood block looks nice, I bet then it'd blend in nicely with other log types.

  8. honestly the mangrove wood and mud alone had me hella excited for the update. i cant wait for all my mods/tweaks to get updated so i can start playing in 1.19

  9. The mangrove swamp gives me the same vibes as the lego dinosaur hunter sets from the early 2000s lmao

  10. I wish you could stain wood a different color so like to have the base mangrove trapdoor or door which I love, but in the color of dark oak or something cause the red is a bit much for my usual build taste haha

  11. I'm looking forward to the mangrove wood most of all out of this update so it's refreshingly coincidental that you chose that as the first thing to explore. Love the content!

  12. Great episode! I found a mangrove swmp in the worst place possible in my world, near a windswept savanna , so now mangrove trees were just sitting there on floating islands, but maybe you could use your biome to make a sort of swamp village? The costumes for the villagers look amazing in the og swamps, maybe they are the same here? I don't know, but your choice!

  13. I'm building a custom village and I replaced my cleric castle with the mangrove door and omg it looks so amazing. It fits the castle design so amazingly and I'm really happy they made it and I just found a mangrove swamp and in the middle with all the sand im making a base there. I moved a hill by my base so replacing the sand with dirt is not gonna be a problem.

  14. The best thing about the update is you have the opportunity to trade/farm your dirt reserves

  15. Wow. I'm still playing 1.16 due to computer stuff, so this kind of close look into biomes is really cool and informative. Mangrove swamps looks amazing.

    A few comments on farming:

    Mangrove trees' roots always grow in a plus shape (as shown by ilmango), so you can plant them in a diagonal line to keep your propagules safe.

    If you double fire dispensers instead of having four of them around the propagule, you can manual farm them from the side to avoid breaking the leaves or dispensers. Still, a piston is probably the way to go.

    For the mud farm, instead of filtering the empty bottles you can feed bottles one by one. So whenever a block is pushed, you first unlock a hopper feeding one bottle into the dispenser, then you power the dispenser and finally unlock the hopper below (or a hopper minecart on top of an activator rail two blocks below).

    Hope it helps!

  16. I'm so glad Pix commented on how lovely the mud blocks are! I totally agree. Many blocks in Minecraft have a texture or an aesthetic. But few provide a natural ambiance or mood (not including lighting blocks). Deep slate was the first to add ambiance, in my opinion. Now mud. And I think skulk brings the same thing. It's easy to imagine any build in a mangrove swamp getting a visual boost from this natural surrounding ambiance. Looking forward to an MC SG2 episode dedicated to mud! And always appreciate how Pix has a discerning eye and nerds out in an informative and entertaining way on the many aspects of minecraft.

  17. nice video man! i hope my channel blows up like yours bc im thinking of quitting cuz im getting no more subs. and i just went down a ton 🙁

  18. The mangrove blocks look like someone spilled fruit punch on some wood in the best way possible

  19. If you don’t want to have to find a mangrove swamp but still want the blocks thankfully you’re in luck! You can make mud with dirt and a water bottle and the wandering trader sells the propagules!

  20. Even though most of this was available in modded Minecraft already it's nice they put the effort into making it look different.
