Just like other episodic movies made by a single (or in this case two) directors, I found the different episodes of similar quality making the choice harder. But I think my vote would go to All Gold Canyon.

Excellent idea because there is no obvious frontrunner. Wikipedia shows Vignette rankings from three critics, and they're all very different from each other.

My order:

1. Near Algodones - I love that bittersweet moment...
2. The Ballad of Buster Scruggs
3. Meal Ticket - I like the (seeming) ambivalence and mystery about the Neeson character
4. The Gal that Rattled
5. All Gold Canyon
6. The Mortal Remains

Indeed it is a hard choice and I think it will be varied. I have asked people in my family that watched it and everyone has a different favourite.

Thanks. Please also add a period after this sentence:
The film is made of six unrelated stories of life in the Old West.

1. The Convoy for its haunting ending
2. The Prospector for the emotional climax and the twist
3. The Opening for its over-the-top spirit and the way it doesn't prepare you for the rest of the film
4. The Theater for its downer ending 
5. The Bank Robbery for its punchline
6. The Stagecoach

Probably Near Algodones or The Gal That Rattled. It's difficult to choose. 'Good poll!

May I suggest one small edit? ('below in bold: added a comma after "Ethan Cohen")

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018), the latest film by Joel Coen and Ethan Coen, is one of the best received westerns and it became a surprise nominee for three 2019 Academy Awards.
