Note: This deck is in no way an endorsement of Brains Over Brain. It's terrible, but Quicksilver is one of the few heroes to not only make it work, but make it fun.

A while ago while making decks on Reddit, I was challenged to make Brains Over Brawn viable. What I came up with is pretty close to this. Since then, Overwatch, Professor X and Dazzler make this deck even more powerful for solo and multiplayer. Despite the promise of "Brains" this is really just a deck myopically focused on building up Quicksilver's base thwart so can not only keep all the threat down, but smack down minions and villains with BoB.

Here's how we do that:

That's it. Impress your friends and family by making a card that never worked before seem almost good!

I was considering how to "best" make a Brains Over Brawn deck recently as well. Kudos to you for something that isn't terrible in multiplayer. Of note, I actually ran a couple of copies of Brains Over Brawn in the Rocket Justice deck I took to Con of Heroes because I purposely was trying to build something that wasn't just like every other Justice deck I play.

@josseroo Thank you! I think the other person to really pull off a Brains Over Brawn deck is Spider-Woman Repurpose. It's just not as versatile as Quicksilver, though. Since she doesn't get the extra ready.

I think Phoenix, Rocket, Rogue and Wasp come close to being able to pull it off. Kudos back to you for using it, too! How did you ready Rocket? Justice Served and CITT?

Justice Served and CITT, exactly!

Kudos for continuing to try and find cool builds in the drought!

How does the timing work woth BoB and Making an Entrance? The BoB doesn't get the +2 does it? Your write up suggests it does unless I'm misunderstanding

@Bushidough They don't interact at all. Are you thinking of Maximum Velocity? Making an Entrance is there for the extra thwart and 2 HP heal.

@journeyman2 Thanks, man! More to come.
