Nanobreaker is an Archetype of Machine/Cyberse EARTH monsters with various Levels. They focus on destroying monsters at the start of the Damage Step rather than by battle, and have various ways of doing so, as well as their monsters being similar to Harpie Lady in that they tend to share the same name, which they also use in their gimmick, like with their Field Spell Nanotech Tri-Field, but some are not actually Nanobreaker. They also have some Fusion Monsters, a single Xyz, Synchro and Link Monster as well. They have a support Archetype called Nanotech for their Spells/Traps.
 
Their theme of supporting both Machine and Cyberse comes from the name, which deals with nanotechnology, so having it be died to both types makes sense to me, and it is more fun too, the Nanotech support Archetype also plays into nanotechnology as well.

Nanobreaker is a card I like a lot. The gal is cute, I like the Machine type, I find the name cool, and also I enjoy the uncertainty of the card's name referring to the girl, the sword, or both.

 

That said, I don't like too much the support you made for her. It all boils down to relatively standard consistency and swarming effects with which you may as well swarm the board and go for Links and whatnot before battling with the monsters. Heck, even the ATK boost of the Field Spell ironically goes against their build-in removal effects through battle. Even the boss monster doesn't look as threatening when it's pretty much a Battle-Phase Volcasaurus.

 

The only cards I find good are Regeneration as the self-retrievable Equip reborn that it is, and Force Field because it actually supports their "removal through effect when battling" theme, but even then, it has its hindrances, such as the inherent 1-turn slowness of Trap Cards, and the need of GY fodder for the first effect.

 

Not saying your direction is wrong, but that you have to give them support that goes along the intended direction. You could further continue, for example, with an archetype Ojamagic you can easily gather multiple Nanobreakers on hand and use the effects of Combiner, Tri-Field and Force-Field more consistently.

You could further continue, for example, with an archetype Ojamagic you can easily gather multiple Nanobreakers on hand and use the effects of Combiner, Tri-Field and Force-Field more consistently.

I don't think I understand how I'm going against their direction, and why is Force Field the card that you find it supporting them the most, when it's a simple protection card where a lot of the others focus on Level manipulation? Tri-Force giving them ATK/DEF is so they can actually do damage, since you give that up on their effects, it's suppose to be your killing move. The idea of Nanobreaker 3.0 is to boost its Level as much as possible with Tri-Field, making it able to deal a lot of turn damage, you can get it to be Level 24 by just having itself on the field, so quite a bit stronger than simply attacking in most cases, and again, a killing move when they normally can't do that through their effects. Having more consistency with the searching is important, but they have very fast and very easy ways to do so, so I'm trying to be careful, Combiner is meant to be used with Instant Fusion, making your monster cost less substantial for it.

Admittedly I did overlook a few things, like Combiner's Level. Still, IMO Force-Field supports them the most because it's the only card that encourages you to keep Nanobreakers on board and battle with them. With the rest of the cards, while they do meddle with the Levels/Ratings of the opponent's monster, with the swarming power they got, plus their own Reborn Equip, I feel you may be better off going for Link laddering strategies before actually battling with Nanobreakers, except in a few cases where they may be useful for removing a problematic monster.

To be fair, Supporter does have a disruptive element by messing with the Level/Rating of an opponent's monster before or during an ED summoning spree.

Tri-Field is potent with the double ATK, but you would need to clear the opponent's field of monsters before starting to deliver the big damaging attacks. That's how I find it a bit unwieldy.

Last cards are up! Funny thing is, I never intended to go the route of having both a Link and a Synchro Monster, I was gonna do an Xyz Monster, but felt like I had the chance to hit each one, since that's fun to do, and allows for some more interesting playstyles, should that be your kind of thing.

 

New Cards:

Nanobreaker Engineer (Level 4 Tuner monster)

Nanobreaker Connector (LINK-2 Link Monster)

Nanobreaker Copier (Rank 4 Xyz Monster)

Nanobreaker Sampler (Level 8 Synchro Monster)

Nanobreaker X (Level 8 Fusion Monster)

Nanotech Upgrade (Quick-Play Spell)

Nanotech Microscope (Normal Trap)

I see you added more swarming, burning and attacking power, rather than deviating to other effects such as removal, also Nanobreaker X kind of behaves as a Tri-Wight or Hysteric Party for the archetype. IDK if it would be a top tier contender, but looks like a solid archetype and wouldn't be surprised it if made it to tier 2 or 2.5 with the swarming power they got in addition to damage bursts from the ED monsters.
