Cell Diagrams

When the equation does not contain a solid and it asks you to draw the cell diagram, does it matter which solid you add? Whether that be platinum, etc...

Platinum (Pt(s)) seems to be the most common choice, although C(graphite) works as well. However, I think most any metal would be suitable, such as nickel or copper, since the presence of these (solid) elements in the cell diagram waives the need to add an extra one. In any case, the two aforementioned are safe bets.
