Powerbase: Tshwane vs. House of Sorrow

Ah, you are right, i did not remember that ecoterrorists had that clause.
But as you mention, PB:Tshwane does not have such a clause ...

Powerbase: Tshwane's effect goes in the "as the card is played" window, before cancellation cards.

Card text indicates it doesn't matter, but before is correct.
The only effects that can go in the "as played" window are:
- cancellation effects
- other cards that require that as per the Golden Rule for Cards (such as, here, the Powerbase)
Rulebook, 1.6.1 wrote: Some effects can cancel a card "as it is played." These effects as well as wake effects (see Special Terms, sec. 11) are the only effects allowed during the "as played" time period of another card. Even drawing to replace cards comes after this time period.
House of Sorrow is not a canceller, not a wake, and does not go in that window by the Golden Rule for Cards.
Once you are outside the "as played" window, you can tap House of Sorrow. But by then it's too late to re-tap PB:T.
