I have no answer to your question, but I did exactly what you describe
using pbuilder, you can even optimize the process and loop-mount some
directory to the pbuilder so that you don't loose your changes after you
tweak rules properly...

As I think about it, I did set it up in a way that post-build hook in
pbuilder (or was it pre-build hook?) invoked interactive bash for me,
and I could continue using modify debian/rules && dpkg-buildpckage right
from the extracted & patched sources in a pbuilder provided chroot.
