Does the Tower favor Gandalf or not?

I think the tower would favor both of them. If there's magic there, Merlin would know of it.

Merlin is the father of all earthly magic. Gandalf isn't from Earth and the battle is on his home turf. Tough call.

But gandalf knows the layout. Plus, correct me if I'm wrong but isn't it his after he takes sarumans place as white wizard?

Would Saruman still be hiding in his tower though?

My thoughts exactly and it would have to be after Saruman.

I also find gandalf the better spell sword, an all around warrior. We see gandalf cast lightning and a righteous beam of light as well as throwing people around a room and chopping orks up. Merlin's powers are usually refined to divination (using the crystal ball to see far into the future) for which gandalf would have orthanc's palantir.

I think this one goes to our buddy in the white.

Edit*
We do see merlin toss Morgan around like a sack of taters and summon lightning and fire but the stronger spells usually take longer incantations and it's usually something we see gandalf do (e.g. When he breaks off a rock in the goblin tunnels and goes bowling in the hobbit)

Merlin's actual powers are not very impressive.  Going with Gandalf.

In terms of magic users, its very hard to say who's the wisest and most powerful. Each has their credibilities, but if it helps you at all to decide who would win a SWATH battle, the wizard who clearly kicks more ass is Gandalf. So he didn't have a massive 'kill all orcs' spells and he didn't destroy Sauron himself. He didn't do that because that wasn't his purpose, he was only supposed to HELP the race of men, if he wanted to topple Sauron he could have done so easily. Gandalf. Kicks. Ass.

Also in that shot the witch king already took his staff and he didn't have time to grab/make another. That was from the end where they were being a distraction for Frodo
