Best Minecraft Deep Dark Seeds for Bedrock & Java (2023)

The Deep Dark is an underground biome that was officially added in Minecraft’s 1.19 The Wild Update. This biome generates below Y-Level 0 and is the only place where the Ancient City can appear.

But the Deep Dark is more than just the Ancient City—it’s a place where Skulk, Skulk blocks, and the fearsome Warden will spawn. I’ve scoured over Minecraft seeds and found some of the most interesting and best Deep Dark Seeds for the Bedrock and Java editions.

Lush Dark Mines

Seed: 8846189759466569930

The first glimpse of this Lush Cave only shows beautiful plants, numerous waterfalls, and a mineshaft full of treasures. However, venturing into the area beyond those will bring you into the Deep Dark! The first area of the biome is safe, but the second is littered with Sculk Sensors that threaten to bring about the Warden. Beyond that dangerous area is more of the Lush Cave and a large segment of a mineshaft just waiting to be explored.

Hidden Sculk Chamber

Seed: 1558642196686183997

The Deep Dark biome in this cave is more hidden than the others on this list, but so long as you know where to go it can easily be found. Initially, it appears to only be a chamber’s worth of Sculk. However, exploring the walls reveals a small hole that, when looked through, promises more Sculk on the other side. Breaking through this wall exposes a long, narrower tunnel with segments of Deep Dark built into it. By adding themed lanterns and decorations, it can be built into a gorgeous, underground Sculk black market.

Into the Sculk

Seed: 760093253505135540

Gazing into this ravine reveals the beginning of a Deep Dark biome in its depths. The many waterfalls in the area can be used to safely make your way towards it. Once the Sculk has been harvested, there are other sections of Deep Dark nearby that can be discovered and mined in the same way.

The Darkness Beneath Cherry Grove

Seed: 5028636964315658202

Spawning in this Cherry Grove is a dream come true, especially with the Plains Village and Pillager Outpost nearby. You would never guess that a Deep Dark biome lies beneath it! After entering the cavern, I found a tunnel made of Sculk leading deeper into the biome. It’s the perfect opportunity to explore and experience the beauty of the Deep Dark first-hand.

Blazing Mines

Seed: -8373506474087932085

These Mines are on fire! Or at least, they will be by the time you find them. As you dig down into the mines, the lava that pools everywhere in this dangerous area will set them ablaze. Still, it’s an impressive area to explore and a great place to set up a base if you can manage to not find yourself burning up.

An incredible section of Deep Dark is hidden right below Spawn! The Plains Village is quite a nice starting point, but it’s what’s below that’s really exciting. What’s more, there’s a huge variety of biomes, structures, and more within a reasonable distance of the starting area. If you want a little bit of everything, this is the perfect spawn!

Giant caverns that seem to go on forever are one of the best parts of the updates since 1.17. This one is so large you could practically move down into the Deep Dark and live here. With fresh water and more resources than you’ll ever know what to do with, this is one of the most exciting Deep Dark biomes we’ve ever seen.

This Deep Dark biome is split into patches and scattered throughout a giant cavern. It serves as the perfect excuse for going on a subterranean adventure. Tally up how many segments of the Deep Dark you can find while gathering all of the cave’s precious minerals. You could even turn it into a Sculk-gathering competition with your friends.

Seed: 7773911887072322643

If you want to experience the Deep Dark in a controlled environment, this is a good seed to get started with! The majority of the cave is Dripstone with a small segment containing Skulk. This segment can be used to study the Sculk, gain experience, or play around with it in a safe space. Whatever your motivations are, you’ll at least be safe from the Warden.

Spawn is set in a Birch Forest near a Stony Shore, facing a Jagged Peaks mountain. The mountain itself is gorgeous and has a Birch Forest crater. What makes this even more special is the cave entrance located at the top of the mountain! The cave drops you first into a beautiful Lush Cave, then into a regular cave before finally letting you down into a Deep Dark biome.

Seed: 3384774913848059316

This gorgeous seed spawns you on one side of this Savannah mountain, with a Savannah Village on the other. There are caves weaving throughout the mountain that provide a variety of mineral resources. However, venturing deeper into the caves will lead you to an even more chilling resource—the Deep Dark. Follow it closely and perhaps you’ll find an Ancient City waiting to be unearthed.

Seed: -8373506474087932085

Enormous Underground

Seed: 3109726350305889127

A cave at the surface that goes straight to bedrock level is a rare find, but in this seed, it’s right by Spawn. And with the helpful village right next to it and the loot-able portal, you can easily prepare yourself for a trip into the darkness!

Seed: 923703441365300422

A Lush Cave spills into the Deepest Darkest part of the world, threatening to turn the gray into green! A series of Lush Caves connect into the large cavern making up the Deep Dark in this seed. On the surface? More trees than you’ll ever know what to do with as a Dark Oak forest and a Birch Forest biome intersect. Looks like it’s time to build a forest retreat connected to the underground darkness!
