If I use Substitute do I still take recoil from moves like Flare Blitz and Brave Bird?

As show here, recoil moves still damage the user if it behind a substitute. Only Magic Guard and Rock Head will prevent recoil

Yes, you will still take recoil from attacks like Brave Bird, Wood Hammer, and Volt Tackle. Self-inflicted damage will not break your Sub, but you will take damage.
