Maarten is absolutely correct.

The deviance for model X is: (log-likelihood for saturated model) - (log likelihood for model X)

This makes the deviance for the saturated model equal to zero. The likelihood ratio test statistic for comparing models X & Y (nested in X) is identical to the Deviance test statistic for comparing the same 2 models:

Deviance for Y - Deviance for X = (log-likelihood for X) - (log- likelihood for Y)

Aren't deviance-based tests just a variation on likelihood ratio tests?
In that case, see -help lrtest-.
