Re: spontaneous mystic ranger..
Just grabbing the Bard casting progression and maybe cherrypicking a few level 6 Druid/Cleric spells would be less stupid than the Mystic Ranger's "Sorcerer to L10, then just stop" progression. I'd do that.
On top-choice Ranger spells, I'd say:
L1: Arrowmind (SpC), Blockade (CSco), Hunter's Eye (PHB2), Hunter's Mercy (SpC), Rhino's Rush (SpC), Entangle, Embrace the Wild (SpC), Guided Arrow (SpC), Instant of Power (FoW), Resist Energy
L2: Lion's Charge (SpC), Listening Lorecall (SpC), Wind Wall, Burrow (SpC), Fell the Greatest Foe (SpC), Spell-slaying Arrow (CoR), Bottomless Hate (Ghost), Barkskin/Halo of Sand (Sand), Near Horizon (CMag)
L3: Arrow/Bladestorm (SpC), Bottle of Smoke (SpC)
L4: Freedom of Movement, Foebane (SpC), Tree Stride, Implacable Pursuer (SpC)
