Pulling them from the back is the way to go if they will pull out. I have had far more success with finishing nails than I have brads. A good portion of the time that I have tried to remove brads they simply break off about 1/16” proud of the surface and then I either end up digging (and digging some more) or getting frustrated with the entire thing and cutting off the material with the offending nails in it. I can always find a use for offcuts.
