You're carving away too much paladin casting for battle-blessing to be a worthwhile feat choice.
You could use the Prestige paladin progression on the ranger side. You'd slow your spellcasting a bit but you'd still hit the 5th level spell cap, if I understand correctly. Then BB would be viable again.
