How do you plan on running the cable? It must be protected, and cannot be exposed to the elements. Does your deck light have a receptacle incorporated into it? I have not seen one. If your existing light has full power and a neutral you can obtain power from there. If it is totally controlled by a switch loop, then your yard light would likewise be controlled by the same switch.
