Higher pixel density will give you a larger image in the end, which is what we are after. That puts an 18mp crop sensor in the lead.

Yes, as I noted earlier; more pixels per bug and all that. However, higher pixel density is not an inherent property of a smaller sensor, so that doesn't relate directly to the question on whether a smaller sensor provides greater magnification. It doesn't.
