Getting started with sfdx CLI -- seems like it sucks?

Maybe I'm just old school and stuck in my ways. But I just tried transitioning from my Sublime/MavensMate/Ant setup to the sfdx CLI, and I just don't get it. But maybe I'm missing something?

My primary development use case is in a full-copy sandbox -- not a package. I don't want to create scratch orgs or temporary packages or any of that nonsense... Can't I sent up VS Code to edit a local copy of my code and have it compile in the sandbox in real time? I'm reasonably confident that I can figure out how to replace Ant, but I haven't even gotten that far.
