Looking for Frontier Anti-Planeswalker cards advice

I would like people's opinion:

What card would you Sideboard and why?

Ruinous Path or Never / Return

I'd choose Never. It gives you additional advantage as early as 4 mana. While Ruinous has a big upside, you can't get access to that until 7 mana, so the "installment" payment of the Aftermath suggests to me that it's more likely to be cast. Return can also be useful in a GY hate scenario.

That's where my brain was going.

I wish the art on Never / Return was as good as Ruinous Path.

I agree with landofMordor; while casting both halves Never / Return on the same turn is most likely slightly worse than Awakening Ruinous Path, the installment plan makes it worth it.

There's also To the Slaughter and Hero's Downfall, which are both instants. :)

You can't play Hero's Downfall in Frontier.

I prefer something more direct than To the Slaughter.

I have Anguished Unmaking, as well.

Argeaux, you've hit the constant struggle of Mel vs Vorthos. Alas. I've faced that struggle many times myself -- if only Silverskin Armor were playable, for example...

Although, if your SB has 2 or more slots dedicated to PW hate, you could always put one of each...?

Nah I'd rather the consistency of a 4 of.
