The first time i played with this group, we lacked a leader. People graviatated towards strikers with sexy fluff, like rangers and assassins, leaving me with a determination to play a general brick who can take a hit and keep everyone standing. 

Enter Aisha, a Dragonborn who has trained from birth to serve Bahamut. She has trained to lead armies in his name, to seek out and destroy evil.

Build notes

I wanted an immensly tough character who would be able to heal the entire party every turn. In general, i am really satisfied.  She can heal like a mad woman, and has solid minors in defending, enabling, and movement. 

I picked the Falchion because i wanted a two handed +3 proficiency weapon with out dropping a feat. In general i feel the Falchion is better than the greatsword, but should i drop a feat on Fullblade?
I spent my hybrid talent on Commanding presence, not realizing it only came into effect once an encounter. This is also why i spent a feat on improved inspiration. Should i spend hybrid talent on something else, even if it is just Healers Mercy?
I picked Champion of Prophecy because it has some nice goodies for level 22 and the fluff. Is there a better ED for this character?  
I'm leaning towards Nobel as a theme, because i like the repositioning power and the fluff. Is there something better i should consider?

 I have no idea who the rest of the party will be, except for two characters I'm building for their players: a Gnome Bard and a Goliath Stralidin (who i may post for PEACH in the coming days)

Anyways, please pick this character apart!  
If you are going for a feat for a weapon I would go with greatspear or spiked chain over fullblade.  Reach is gerally better than higher damage for a melee leader.

Your feats are fine, but durable would probably be more useful than toughness.  I wouldn't take improved inspiration.  Superior will or something else would be better.  And I would switch battle surge for word of vigor.

I think you have too much healing overall, even more so since it looks like you will have a paladin and bard in the party.  I would switch some of it out for more buffing and attack granting powers.  Especially recovery strike for righteous brand.  I would also swtich out stand the fallen for staggering spin.  Maybe even retrain healing strike in late heroic for something like prophetic guidance. 

I kind of like dragonfear for your build too, but that is more of a style choice.
What feat should I sub in for improved inspiration? I was looking at Greatspear proficency, but I mostly wanted it for Hafted defense, and that doesnt stack with Battleclerics Lore. Meanwhile, I have Master of Stories, which takes spiked chain out of the picture. So ill stick with the trusty Falcion. But that doesnt solve the initial question; what to sub in for Improved Inspiration? I was eyeing Lend Strength/ might, but i have an Paragon Teir slot open with access to all the Bard, warlord, and cleric support, so im sure theres a better option out there, even if i dont know of it. 
...It doesn't take spiked chain out of the picture.  It just means you get it by Weapon Proficiency (which gives you the reach version) instead of the multiclass (which gives you the double version).
Would epic reflexes be a suitable replacement? It would help shore up my lowest defense to look almost respectable. This is especially pertinent to me, because i am attempting to be an off tank. 
Epic reflexes are fine.  Its one of the feats I reccommend all battle clerics consider.
